Conservation Concept on Areas with Overlapping Character (Moslem, Colonial and Post Independence Era)
Ancient maps reveal that Dutch colonial have covered alun-alun as the Moslem city image like those in Jakarta, Surabaya, except in Semarang. Both Indonesian Moslem and colonial city experts cannot explain the phenomena. The alun-alun lama Semarang left its morphologic artifacts. Which layer of urban design should be conserved? To reveal the layer of the development, three-dimensional picture by freehand modeling based on visual historical approach method can be done as an early stage. The civilization era are in interaction, but tend to neglect the Moslem city image. Further research is needed using a computer drawing, to get a clearly image of Moslem city.
Keywords: city’s civilization era; conservation; urban pattern; morphology modelling
