Project Description:
Space Syntax is an advanced spatial technology as well as a highly influential theory of architecture and town planning. It was originally developed by Professor Bill Hillier and his colleagues at University College London (UCL).

Through over twenty years of research-informed consulting, they have developed a powerful computer-based modelling technique that demonstrates the key role of spatial layout in shaping patterns of human behaviour. These patterns include movement on foot, on cycles and in vehicles; wayfinding and purchasing in retail environments; vulnerability and criminal activity in buildings and urban settings; co-presence and communications in the workplace.

Their technology is underpinned by spatial design principles that have influenced planning and design policy throughout the world. Their mission is to help create environments that are socially and economically sustainable.
