Abstract

This project is a proposal for development of street mall as social place for Port Dickson town. The development covers from Jalan Sultan Aman Shah, Jalan Baharu and part of a reclamation land in beside the town. Two issues were considered for the redevelopment: lack of tourist, and few activities during the night. Tourists did not acknowledge the town as a historical port town and the local did not appreciate their town heritage. The activities of the town can not prolong until night times since no activities provided. The project applied a conservation approach called restoration. Hence, artifacts in the town such as railway gate, railway station warehouse, and town boundaries are conserved. The development is aimed to restore the existing condition into British era with vibrant activities and significant identity. The improvement is to enhance and inject suitable activities into town by proposed museum, plaza and food center. The theme for the street mall development is outdoor gallery. It is meant to display, to evoke, to understand and to educate public people. The concept of project is Trail of Heritage which means the marking of artifact. Vista, activity, artifact, space and circulation are considered as heritage marking. The planting concept is form and color. Pure form and variety of colored planting are selected with consideration of micro-climate, visual quality and history. The development objective is to create a vibrant space that can attract pedestrian and provide interacting space for social use. Besides, it also intent to improve sense of place using site context, history and architecture and to create awareness among public through proposed activities. The mall is the major attraction for the tourists and urban dwellers. Public can access the mall either by walking or using vehicle. The museum proposed as a tool to educate and to display local history to tourists. In conclusion, the street mall is a landscape development for tourist and also conserves the town artifact for public uses.
