    Abstract

    The historical urban elements have strong values as part of city identity that differentiates a city from other places. Previous studies have explored the way to identify place identity using the imperishable evidence. This paper analyzes the effort to rebuild identity where the perishable urban elements are dominated. By reviewing the concept of identity and the meaning of place, this paper answers the research question of how to rebuild and redefine the identity of a place where the physical evidences are tend to be neglected or disappeared. It concludes human aspect contributes to the sustainability of identity. People are more aware to the imperishable urban evidence and its combination with modern style. These responses will construct the meaning of the place, in another word, the identity of the place
