Abstract

This study attempts to understand the public evaluation towards elements that exist within the temporal dynamics of the cities. In particular the study explores the extent to which street vendors in Jakarta are evaluated as 'out of place' elements at day time and night time. The findings suggest that the users' evaluation of street vendors as 'out of place' change from day time to night time. The change of users' evaluation also varies across different urban places. In particular the study suggests that the presence of street vendors seems to be less unacceptable (out of place) at night time. Such knowledge regarding the dynamic of 'out of place' evaluation becomes important in making the decision about temporary urban elements in the city.
