Main Article Content
The research aims to examine the spatial dominance by evaluating the relationship between the spatial configuration of streets network and the proportion of pedestrians. In analyzing the street networks in Space Syntax, the question arises; to what extent the movement and activity may explain street integration among gender-based pedestrians. The result found that there is a correlation between spatial configurative analyses and women present in the streets -the more integrated and localized streets attract more women pedestrians compared to the men. The research is relevant to spatial design interventions and policymaking to improve the gender-equal access to public space.
