The research has established the main features of the current state and prospects for the development of intellectual resources (capital), which can lead to the formation of a new level of qualitative and quantitative indicators of traditional and non-traditional architectural systems. The article presents the conceptual apparatus of the phenomenon of “Renaissance of intellectual capital” as a modern form of development of intangible assets and a way to implement innovative technologies (from various fields of knowledge) in the process of architectural creativity. The features of the state and development of intellectual capital for solving architectural problems and construction practices of past historical epochs are considered. An algorithm for solving non-standard problems of architectural creativity (non-traditional, problematic situations) with the involvement of an intellectual resource has been developed. It is established that the intellectual resource is the basis of research and practical innovation, which is carried out in the specific context of the formation of non-traditional architectural systems, methods and methods to ensure the level of their manufacturability (design, manufacture, transportation, construction, operation). The availability of intellectual resources is a key factor in providing the necessary competitive advantages over traditional architectural systems and ways to organize them into architectural objects.
