Abstract: Due to the up-to-date activities of the Russian Orthodox Church, there raised a vital need for the construction of temples and multifunctional complexes that would include liturgical, cultural, educational, charitable and economic functions. The most common form of the temple complex is the parish church. The study considers, the construction of prefabricated parish churches and multifunctional Orthodox complexes, their design features, spatial composition and functional zoning. Technical solutions that allow to build quickly multifunctional temples are being considered. Belgorod and Stary Oskol diocese temple complexes reveal new compositional structure of temple construction in post-industrial space of the urban environment. Variants of multifunctional wooden temples construction are considered (wooden churches are built quickly, they are majestic and beautiful), a variety of precast concrete solutions that made it possible to modify the space-planning composition of temples depending on the needs while constructing in each locality; mixed constructive system multifunctional temples (brick walls of curved shape overlapped by precast concrete domes).
