Abstract

The Menanga Village has interesting traditional houses and village layout. There are some unique architectural shapes, easily known and remembered by the observers’ minds. This study combines descriptive and graphical method with quantitative analysis to translate the mental map into a variable map, in order to determine the role of architectural elements as a place identity in village space. Based on the mind map, the Lynch five elements in Menanga Village are distributed into four sequences as district and path, edges, nodes, and landmarks. The results of the study show that the district and path elements were remembered by all of the observers, edges were remembered by most observers, while nodes and landmarks were only remembered by a small number of them. The most dominant placemark element is the combination of traditional houses rows with the main corridors forming unique village visual character. The large river flow behind the residential area and the highway in the front of the village has an important role as a boundary line of the village’s core. Other physical elements that are supposed functioned as nodes and landmark markers are too weak and unable to be a place marker or as a navigation tool for people who want to go elsewhere in the village core. Therefore, structuring and façade repairing of architectural elements are needed to realize the visual linkage among the elements. It aims to lift the image and identity of Menanga as a traditional architectural village that needs to be preserved.
