The article deals with the process of forming the structural solution of the buildings in St. Petersburg in the 1703-1730-s. St. Petersburg has established its own sustainable architectural and structural system, which remained virtually unchanged until the beginning of the XX century. This system began to be formed during the reign of Emperor Peter I, by borrowing and mastering the Western European experience, combining the advanced innovations of that time and Russian traditions. Generalization of the experience of creating a structural system will allow assessing the evolution of the construction skills in St. Petersburg, identifying and preserving the structural elements of the historical buildings of the city center.
