 Summary:
 Multifamily residential buildings represent today the largest part of built structures when it comes to the use of the land in the city of Novi Sad. Incorporated in multi-functional urban blocks, housing typology dominates in both functional and spatial sense, but in the last decade, architectural expression gets more and more importance, giving a form itself an equally important role in the formation of urban landmarks as structures that stands in relation to the immediate environment. In the city of Novi Sad large urban transformations at the end of XX and at the beginning of the XXI century have influenced building of numerous multi-family residential buildings that are accentuated by their morphology, architectural elements and/or with colouring schemes. However, massive buildings or whole urban blocks with multi-family residential buildings that are designed to become the dominant visual landmark of neighbourhoods make the overall image of the city that was formed in this period of intensive urban transformation. This paper will analyse architectural and urban factors that impose multi-family residential buildings to become visual landmarks. Evaluation and discussion of results will point out the possibility to use architectural elements to influence the changes in the silhouette of the city and how to take advantage of the most common building typology to create the modern image of the city.
