    Abstract. In a brief historical retrospective the evolution of the origin and formation of Russian circus art objects is considered. It is shown that a network of capital circus buildings formed in large Russian cities in the second half of the twentieth century is one of dominant features of a biosphere-compatible city, developing man. The analysis of historical evolution of functions of such public buildings is given. It is established that most functioning circus buildings in the country are not currently fully meet modern functional requirements and the safety requirements of increased level of responsibility buildings. That is why they need either reconstruction or repair. However, in the context of the current practice of technical and legal regulation of the operation of objects of an increased level of responsibility, there are no mechanisms to ensure timely reconstruction or overhaul aimed at meeting the safety requirements of already operated buildings. The problem becomes more acute not only due to the need to ensure all the dynamically changing requirements of the safety of such unique objects operation with a large number of people visiting them, including children, but also due to the need to preserve the historical buildings of circuses and their landscape and recreational environment.
    Key words: circus, reconstruction, biosphere compatibility, recreational space, multifunctional complex, urban planning system.
