Contestation of public space featuring various aspects of life residents, including; economy, entertainment, politic, and life style. One of the paradox emerging from this, manifest in the use of public space that goes beyond function and objectives of that public spaces. The transformation of public space on the pretext of land for public purposes but in fact the public space is only a tool for other purposes that are not at all reflect the functional public space. flexibility of space limit led to the use of space in the daily practice of the city by providing the spectacle image of the city through public space multiuse, multi-function and multiculturalism, as mutually overlapping use of space with a variety of activities, commodities and interest attached to them.
