In the past and present, the physical built environment was designed by designers and urban planners to respond to the requirements of general public without a lack of consideration for some group of people who might use the physical environment in a different way. The objectives of this research experiment with urban planning and architectural design technique focusing on human psychology, using psychopaths and a perfect crime scene in Red Light District, Amsterdam as an experiment apparatus. Usually, Amsterdam is perceived as a tourist district and ranked at number 4 of the safest city in the world, however, if looking from another lens, an existing spatial quality could become an issue. Study through 6 main stages of the crime scene: The beginning of crime scene, Tools for crime preparation, Space of searching for victim, Space for crime, Conceal or destroying evidence, and Escaping after the crime by analyzing through the urban plan and physical environment in Red Light District. From the analysis of urban planning through the physical environment that affects human psychology. This resulting in the unfolding of the urban planning and architectural design that facilitates criminals to commit the perfect crime but still be a response to the functional needs of general public. If designers and urban planners design the physical environment to respond to the demand, supporting or solving problems and also taking into consideration the view of the criminals as well, the final design perhaps could reduce the dangerous situation that could occur in the society.
