Abstract

This research examines an attractive public space, Malaysian urban living, Putrajaya. A review was carried out to identify characteristic of place that enrichment of space to generate social integration and pleasure between communities. There are various understandings of the concept of public space. They range from a space of democratic expression for all (Politics) to the space between buildings, that foster human interaction and is based on rigorous design principles (Architecture and Urban Design). For this purpose new squares and parks were seen as an opportunity to develop new places, revitalize shabbier districts, as well as to upgrade the traditional and colonial public spaces. Series of public spaces in Putrajaya are striking in their compromising modernity with hard surfaces and steely constructivist open spaces. The article focuses on extract literature findings, the analysis and site observation in the studied case in on most attractive Public Square, Putra Square in Putrajaya. The study revealed that Putra Square is unique and attractive place for public in the community. Therefore, this paper reviews the characteristics of attraction square as public space. This study also implied that the square and it surrounding area convey various architectural categories of meaning which lead to the image formation of public square. This paper will first present an integrative model of understanding the slippery concept of 'public space' and then it will discuss on the physical dimension and present an objective way of measuring the 'publicness' of a public place from an urban design point of view.
