Abstract

Streets are the most important part of the urban environment. Streets, in the past, were the places of informal meetings, kids' play, social gatherings, and processions. Streets have evolved into massive engineering roads that celebrate 20th-century technological development. Considering streets as roads has ruined this very space's socio-cultural importance and real character by giving priority to cars over human beings. The objective of the research is to differentiate the rich street space from the. Through the qualitative method, this study differentiates the use and feel of streets and roads separately. Learning from old street patterns, particularly in medieval Islamic cities, reinforced the socio-cultural aspects of the street. It is concluded that all stakeholders should work together to introduce a new model for balancing people, socio-cultural character, and vehicular traffic. This may prove to be the best solution to bring back the lost character of street space.
