Many Indonesian people live near the ocean or the river. Some of them even live on the water. Most of their individual activities as well as communal activities are carried out on the water. This paper describes the use of communal space by people who reside on the water. The communal life of people on the river and by the bay in Banjarmasin and Pohuwatu will be portrayed to illustrate the living culture on the water. The goal is to provide the understanding of living culture that can be used as a reference to create a better living for people that live on the water.
