Abstract

Concerning the issue of place attachment, the research tends to observe the functional attachment, which will affect the level of attachment in Hiraq Square Lhokseumawe (HSL), a renowned public space among local people in the city of Lhokseumawe, Aceh, Indonesia. Place attachment is known as a process to unite people and specific space that can encourage the sense of place. It is also indicating the interrelation between physical features and its function. Through this process, the sense of a place can emerge. These concepts concentrate on the physical features and activities, together with the meanings affected by users, will establish the meaning and identity of the place. The research is conducted by applying an indirect method to simplify ordinary patterns and people-particular patterns of the place.

The findings indicate that people have a robust relationship with the local environment and appoint the significance of place as economics’ dependence and recreational place. The level of functional attachment to HSL ranges from level 1 to level 3, whereas level 3 implicates a higher engagement in loyalty, goals, and obedience to the environment.
