In this study we explore the relationship between street front quality and social life in streets, as characterised in streets with different degrees of centrality in the contemporary city centre of Tripoli. In Section II we briefly present the method of research for the measurements of street centrality, street front quality and street life. In Section III we present the three case studies and the selection criteria utilised. Section IV presents the findings, and subsequently Section V sums up the potentials of street centrality and quality within the city centre of Tripoli and their contribution to street life in order to develop a more sustainable planning framework conducive to a different and more historically aware urban future in Libya.
