Abstract

Generally, all the Javanese ancient philosophy always emphasizes the harmonious relationship between man with his society, nature, God and even with his existence as a human being. This philosophical concept underlies almost all the Javanese spatial design at all scales of architecture. Being influenced by a complex cultural changes, Kauman settlement has emerged as a distinct entity in many major traditional cities of Java, including in Yogyakarta and Semarang. In this case, Kauman becomes a symbol, not only of the philosophy of Java, but also of Islam to which the local society orient their faith and rites. The research emphasizes the importance of conserving Kauman settlement as a constituent element defining the identity of Yogyakarta and Semarang City, especially in facing the recent challenge resulted from globalization phenomenon. The research has two goals which are to re-conceptualize each Kauman’s urban structure in regards with Javanese philosophy and Islamic ideology and to redefine the current characteristics of each Kauman settlement. The methodology impemented on this research is phenomenology by adopting an ethnographic approach that depends on the researcher’s interpretation upon Kauman’s urban structure based on philosophy and cultural perspective.
