Nowadays, cities in Indonesia have undergone many developments and rapid changes. Growth and development of a city is directly proportional to the socio-cultural, economic and political development. The development is also accompanied by population growth, either by natural or non-natural growth which leads to the formation of the morphological pattern of the city. This phenomenon causes changes in the physical characteristics of the area and may also impact on the behavior pattern that occurs. Accordingly, this research will explore the relationship between two main components of place – physical attributes and activities – and concentrates on the relationship between urban morphology related to people’s behavior patterns. This study uses typology-morphological analysis to appraise urban morphology and qualitative assessment to appraise peoples behavior pattern. The results of this study gained that some aspects of morphology of the area (ie land use, street pattern and building structure) have a direct relationship to the behavioral pattern. While the plot pattern has an indirect relationship to the behavioral pattern.
