Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The revival of waterfronts began more than 40 years ago, when waterfront areas became centers of intense redevelopment activity. Active and evolving programming is essential to waterfront success and may also be used to generate revenues. This paper explores the issues of waterfront as public space through a case study of a waterfront along Sungai Klang between Masjid Jamek and Central Market. This paper focuses on the characteristic and analysis of the public space of the waterfront. The first part of the paper is about understanding the subject. The paper then outlines the physical location of the study area and the attempts to make use the waterfront as visions of urban space. Public space at the case study area is currently used as public access along the river. The aim of the research is to analysis and study the effectiveness of the waterfront in creating a pleasant public space. Development and planning processes are explored in some detail to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the public space. The study concludes with some comments on the relevance of the case study for debates on urban theory. At the end of this chapter, the overall framework for the study is presented.
