Abstract

The Jakarta downtown area, which is Medan Merdeka area was historically established by the Dutch colonial government. However, this area now has become a national symbol and the central government of the Indonesian Republic. This research aims to find the relations patterns between the urban planning, the states, and the societies through employing structuration theory proposed by Anthony Giddens. The research result concluded that state as a structure and the society as an agent play a role to shape the meaning and the cities’ order. The meaning of Medan Merdeka area of Jakarta is continuing to change, in accordance with the social and political conditions of the Indonesian people.
