    Abstract. At present buildings of TV centers and TV towers are an integral part of the architecture of the largest Russian cities. A media center is analyzed as a complex of buildings and facilities for creation and translation of TV and radio information. The main typological characteristics of the media center and functional components of this type of architectural complex are presented. An analysis of domestic and foreign experience in design and construction of media centers is performed. The system of selection criteria for media centers placement in the planning structure of cities and in their functional zones are defined. Modern principle approaches are revealed and the main trends in their urban planning placement and spatial organization are defined. Proposed basic approaches to architectural designing of media centers were implemented in the project proposal related to determination of location and making space-planning decision for Orel City media center. A brief description of the developed design solution is presented. It is noted that the study and subsequent implementation of modern approaches to the formation of architecture of media centers is a relevant and important social issue and the proposed project, in its turn, reflects a practical solution to this problem on the example of the Orel City.
    Key words: media center, TV complex, TV tower, pilot project, architectural-planning concept, panoramic areas.
