The paper deals with integration of wind driven power plants (further referred to as WDPP) into the architecture of low-rise residential buildings in coastal areas. The impact of the architectural form of low-rise buildings on the formation of wind currents` speed for wind turbines as a building element is considered. The main types of WDPP for their integration into the architecture of low-rise buildings are determined. The author highlights some foreign projects of buildings with WDPP integration taking into account their efficiency on power supply at the primary use of wind generators. The architectural morphogenesis of low-rise residential buildings with an advantageous use of wind power is regarded as a hypothesis and goal setting of the article.
