One of the important elements on the pedestrian space is the pavement material. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between the selection of permeable pavement material in the pedestrian walkway and the human comfort movement. The study case is conducted in the campus area of the University of Indonesia, where most of the pedestrian walkway is using permeable pavement material. The observation was held during the time before and after the rain. The discussion of this study includes the discussion of the character and performance of the permeable pavement material, the space created by human movement and the activities in the pedestrian walkway, and the effect of permeable pavement material on human comfort movement.
