Abstract

Accroding to Biddulph (7007, p. 211) and Madani Pour (2003, p. 142), there is a general tedency to position open space at the centre of a group of houses with their main entrances and living room windows facing the open space. The space in front of a house is an important part of the inhabitan's sphere. Madanipour (2003, p. 158) reveal a tedency to extend private soace beyound the home. This space can be used to play, sit, talk, celebrate, and observe the drama of life unfold (engwicht 1999, p.3). According to Alexander et al. (1977, p.311), open space will seem deseted if to large, will lack privacy if too close to the street, and will rarely be too far away from houses because it would be too isolated. Public open space itself is influenced by the social and cultural life of the local inhabitants. Rapoport (1969, p.46) revealed that space will be affected by the changes and differences in the interplay of social, cultural, ritual, economic, and physical factors. The layout of space exposes the relationship beetween its occupants (Johnson 1993, p.30; Darjosanjoto 2007) In this Paper, the status of public open space in residential areas on sumba, comparing traditional villages contemporary settlements. this study is part of research that aims to determine the meaning of public open space in residential areas. this paper aims to explore the meaning of public open space in Sumbanese residential areasand wether the existence of public space had same meaning in the past daily life as it has today. This will be achieved through the analisis and the comparison of physical settings, layout and meaning of public open space in sumbanese traditional villages and contemporary residential housingareas.
