Study of the Comfort Level Based on Thermal Humidity Index (THI) of Soekarno Hatta Streetscape in Malang City. Streets as part of the city's landscape that support the function and activities of the city. Each street in the city area has a streetscape that aims to support the users activities. Soekarno Hatta street is one of the protocol street in Malang city which is quite famous and one of the crowded route in Malang City.
