dc.description.abstract Urban life in an urban street is valuable for a city and important to societies and becomes memorable when people are active in public spaces. The urban street must be seen as the public realm of our city and its contribution to public life. In urban design, the consideration relating to people, and the way in which they interact have tended to be neglected, especially in an urban street. Because of that there is an apparent crisis in public life, which results in the loss of public realm. But if the urban street is given the attention required, there is a possibility of bringing back the public life, which is very important to the society. Hence the essence of the argument relates to the public realm or street life in Sri Lankan context and, the study is based on the question of how to rejuvenate the street life when designing the urban space.
