Research publications

The Space Syntax Laboratory’s expertise lies in developing robust methods of analysis for studying the built environment as a physical entity.

The Laboratory accomplishes this by uniquely combining the creation of software for spatial network analysis with quantifiable data on observed function and social network analysis, so that metric properties of space can be analysed in relation to social and economic measures.

Space syntax methods can predict the effects of spatial interventions on aspects of social, organisational and economic performance in existing built environments and new urban areas.
