Abstract

Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) is a crime prevention philosophy based on the theory that proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime, as well as an improvement in the quality of life. Natural surveillance in CPTED aims at keeping potential intruders or criminals under observation. Panopticism (which adopted from the word panopticon) was introduced by Foucault, as a diagram of modern power, an architectural model that is ideal to demonstrate the power of modern discipline. Panopticism concept is surveillance with one is totally seen without ever seeing and one sees everything without ever being seen. This concept means that there are people who are being monitored continuously without ever know who is watching, and there are people who are always able to supervise without being seen by the supervised. The concept of panopticism served the aim of natural surveillance in CPTED. The purpose of this research is to study, identify the concept of panopticism as one of the surveillance technique and solutions in crime prevention through environmental design. The objective of this research is to determine the mapping of panopticism concept as one of the technique in crime prevention through environmental design
