Abstract

Airports have a role to represent identity related to where the building is located. Airports have obligations, especially in terms of their hierarchy as "gates", to provide an understanding of the identity of places for visitors. After research, especially international airports in Indonesia, place identity is something that is not considered. This shows the existence of the issue of "placelessness" in airport buildings. In addition, there has not been much research explaining the important relationship between place identity and airports, including how to implement areas, aspects, and what place identities can be used to strengthen identity. This study uses two international airports. These two airport precedents were chosen in accordance with the airport precedent study table in Indonesia, which concluded that these airports have a more prominent identity principle compared to other international airports. The results of the study show that the most important and easy-to-use aspects are symbolic shapes and territorial shapes in the regional area. While the areas that are required to use place, identities are circulation in and out of the airport area, departure lounge, block plan, arrival hall, arrival hall to VOA & Baggage claim area, and exit hall.
