 Summary:
 The various typologies of public buildings in the city are more or less recognized in the collective conscience of the community as benchmarks, allowing orientation in space, recognition of city units, definition of the town image, as well as forming socialization sites. With the program, content, design, materialization and urban micro-ambient that such places generate around themselves, they are becoming suitable for achieving social contact among inhabitants. The attractiveness that a certain structure possesses in terms of contribution to social development is significantly influenced by the typological point. Furthermore, the morphological characteristics, areal features, building identity and the offered contents form various gathering places in the building or its immediate surroundings. These places differ regarding the amount of users, as well as the frequency and quality of utilization. The importance of public buildings can be either global or local, depending on which the structure of participants in them changes during the process of socializing. They can be distinguished based on affiliation to a certain age, education or interest category, as well as the place of residence. This study investigates public buildings in the central area of Novi Sad. This area is also the functional center of the city where most public buildings with various typologies and levels of identity are located. By analyzing public structures and their urban environment, the degree of their significance for social interaction among the inhabitants will be determined. These analysis will also define the character of the gathering places, as well as examine the opportunities that they provide and the effects that impact the social development of the community. The attendance to certain public objects, the purpose of visit, as well as the time spent in them are dictated by the parameters that are the subjects of this research. Conclusions will be presented on the basis of the perception and categorization of urban, program and morphological determinants of analyzed public buildings evaluated in relation to aspects of socialization. The functioning and the character of the socialization sites directly related to the objects will also be valorized and the causal relations between them will be highlighted.
