However, this festival is only held once-a-year and only takes place in one area in Kemang. So it is important to see how heterogeneous public space can occur, take form, and persist within this festival. One way to form heterogeneous public spaces is pluralizing. In terms of urban design, pluralizing is how specific ethnic groups transform the meaning and functions of public space, which results in a more heterogeneous public sphere . This pluralizing is about how a group gets its place among other groups. This research on the use of space at this Festival Palang Pintu shows several things such as negotiative, adaptive, and assertive that support the occurrence of pluralizing public spaces in the corridor of Jalan Kemang Raya to form heterogeneous public space. The presence of these pluralized spaces can produce public spaces with a sense of tolerance, communication, and mutual understanding of cultures.
