This paper analyses the mental mapping of Bertam, Seberang Perai Utara, Penang on five urban architecture elements: paths, districts, edges, nodes, and landmarks. These five components usually occur and interweave in urbanization. Taman Bertam Perdana 2 is known as Garden City in Bertam. Seberang Perai Utara has a master plan with a circular architectural design that makes the site appear cooperatively organized. For successful urbanization, the urban layout will compete with all urban planning elements to create a city identity with its style and character. In this analysis, the path is the most dominant factor. This study reveals that Garden City in Bertam has an urban design with a circular gridiron street model. The circle style pattern is distorted in the Taman Bertam Perdana region due to the site's flat land typology. In creating a garden city, all these elements need to blend to achieve the best urbanization environment. It will help set up urbanization and aim for more practical urban areas. Disciplinary: Architecture, Urban and Town Planning. (C) 2021 INT TRANS J ENG MANAG SCI TECH.
