Summary/Abstract: An integral part of the process of uniting the city is to note the importance of communal places as fields of concentration of interpersonal acting. The need for gathering places is the result of human nature and determines space perception. The urban habitat is perceived by citizens mainly through the form and nature of the common areas. First of all common spaces showcase the settlements, neighborhoods, cities and create a sense of bond - attachment with the place. The quality of urban interiors affects the formation of social ties and thereby the attractiveness of the urban environment. Improper adjustment of public spaces disintegrates urban structure. In effect makes it difficult or even impossible to identify with the place. The confrontation of the reality with the need for change often stimulatethe s local community to action, which change space in collaboration with the architect (as in the Stockholm district Tensta - Piazza Taxingeplan). Actions bonding urban structure can take various forms but most commonly lead to the formation of a space oriented to users, encouraging residents to integration.
