The livability of urban space recently is being seen as a common need for pedestrian, since walking as a basic mode of transportation is getting more consideration of its importance. Sidewalk, as an open public space for pedestrian, is a part of citys face and image, because sidewalks can be seen as an open bowl of perceptions of its stakeholders.
Henry Lefebvres spatial triad concept gives the framework for understanding the phenomena behind urban space production and reproduction by analyzing stakeholders perceptions. One dimension of the triad is representation of space, the dimension of decision makers, which can be a government, legislative, operator or developer. In the other side is representational space, a perceived and a lived experiences of users with variety of socio- cultural background. Both triads dimensions influence each other, and give shapes and characteristic of resulted spatial practice, the third dimension, and its physical environment.
The research was conducted in Margonda street of Depok in Indonesia and Kitakyushu in Japan. Economic, social and cultural background differences characterized each countrys spatial triads perception on pedestrian public spaces. This research is expected to provide the framework for self-understanding and knowledge of living ideas in society.
