The Indonesian government has also acted to contain the spread of Covid-19 by implementing&nbsp; the policy "Enforcement of Community Activities Restrictions Enforcement (PPKM)". The existence of these social restrictions has led to the stagnation&nbsp; of the tourism industry. The state of Indonesia's tourism economy, especially Parapat, remains volatile due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The purpose of this study is to investigate the economic situation of the tourist destinations of Parapat in the Covid-19 pandemic. This study uses a qualitative study with a descriptive approach.

Toba Samosir regency coastline length is 115.8 km or 24.7% of the total length of Lake Toba’s coastline. Balige district as the capital of Toba Samosir Regency has a density level of 49023 people/km2. With a large population and the highest density level in Toba Samosir regency, residential areas spread from the center to the outskirts of the Balige district. Along with technological advances in the current era of globalization, the potential for tourism in Indonesia is growing rapidly. Residents who live on the shores of Lake Toba compete in the tourism sector by establishing various types of inns, restaurants and various recreational areas along the shores of Lake Toba. Each waterfront settlement on Sibolahotang Street has different typology from one another waterfront settlement. By observing the waterfront settlement typology, this research is carried out so that an appropriate planning and designing towards the settlement can be done in the future</p> Rizky Annisa Lestari Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Architecture and Urbanism 2022-03-31 2022-03-31 6 1 114 120 10.32734/ijau.v6i1.8678 Traditional Settlement Patterns on The Parapat Girsang Sipangan Bolon District <p>Settlement is one of the important elements including basic needs.

The traditional games in this area are playing kites, jumping rope, marbles, stilts, Sodor carts, bezel balls, shadow puppets, and so on. This tourist area is located in the countryside, away from highways and noise. This study aims to revitalize the area so that its utilization can be more optimal. The method used is qualitative, namely direct observation in the research area. The phenomenon in the area has not been fully utilized in terms of its potential. The conditions that occur are things that are considered potentially unused. The revitalization area uses the Place Attachment theory as the basis, the theory of outdoor design as a reflection of the needs of the tourist area, and Kevin Lynch's theory will be used to determine what is considered attractive and has the potential to be developed or eliminated. This result was obtained from the revitalization of the area as a tourism village and tourism object in the Deli Serdang Regency.&nbsp;</p> Prahmita Karima D.

The old warehouse building will be re-functioned as the Deli Tobacco Museum to revive the building's historical value. However, there was a consideration of the need for location and respect; besides the Museum building, there were also other building design functions, one of which was the Hostel. The research method used is qualitative. Qualitative methods, namely, 1) data collection. 2) Design Analysis. 3) Design Concept. Concepts can be created through user needs, environment, analyzes, and studies that have been carried out, problems, and solutions found. Procurement of the Deli Tobacco Museum and Hostel is a solution to increase the community's knowledge and interest to learn about the history that has existed in Medan.

Biophilic architecture creates areas that can help everyone focus, improve physical and mental health, improve mood, help reduce stress, provide a positive physiological response, arouse curiosity, refresh memory and problem-solving skills, and need exploration. The method used in this study is a descriptive analysis method with a qualitative approach, with the initial step of collecting data in physical, non-physical data, and application development regulations through observation of the design site and literature review. This study aims to find out how the application of biophilic designs in creative industrial buildings creates a creative environment and optimizes human needs for green open spaces based on theoretical studies.

This research was conducted to determine the problems in Sukaramai Medan Traditional Market based on physical and non-physical factors that affect access used as a guideline for improvement to create a more convenient area for market users. This study uses mixed methods between quantitative and qualitative methods with data collection used in the form of observations on the existing condition and surveying respondents that related. The several variables observed in the analysis are market location, trading rooms, and merchant mobility. Several physical and non-physical factors associated with congestion with the lowest value can be used as the main focus in improvement. It is the market setup and item type arrangement for physical factors, while for non-physical factors, it relates to parking area and circulation. Suppose the problems on some of these factors can be resolved.
