    Working with cities across Europe, using digital planning tools & open source data to create Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans.


    Space Syntax has partnered in an EU-funded research project to develop sustainable mobility strategies for towns and cities of all sizes. The findings of the “Sump-Plus” research project help places address their differing mobility challenges, with a focus on low carbon solutions including walking, cycling and public transport. Working across six cities (Alba Iulia, Antwerp, Greater Manchester, Klaipeda, Lucca and Platanias) Sump-Plus is putting mobility where it belongs: at the heart of sustainable urban transformation.

    Our role

    The role of Space Syntax has been to develop mobility assessment tools for the city partners that bring together data on spatial layout and land use patterns. The resulting “Integrated Urban Models” assist in the creation of sustainable mobility strategies. These models can be combined with qualitative assessments that identify the local issues that need to be addressed and the processes by which these might be achieved.

    Ultimately, the Sump-Plus partnership helps urban places create context-specific mobility strategies, which respond to local parameters including size and available resources. Crucially, these strategies integrate across professional disciplines that are otherwise siloed: transport planning, urban design, landscape design, urban economics and health. By combining digital techniques with collaborative processes, the project delivers an innovative approach to the challenge of sustainable mobility solutions.
