Space Syntax offers a range of training programs, tailored to user needs. A three-day training workshop was arranged for 7 staff members from different groups within SWECO, the Swedish engineering company. The event was designed to provide hands-on technical software training, as well as training in the theoretical concepts underlying the Space Syntax approach. The workshop program was structured around a live project, the Metborgatsplatsen in the Södermalm area of Stockholm.
The main training objectives were:
– to introduce Space Syntax planning and design principles and project methodology
– to develop technical skills and knowledge to conduct spatial analysis using Space Syntax modelling technology
– to disseminate knowledge necessary to interpret the results of the analysis to inform strategic, evidence-based design development of urban projects
– to visit a selection of Space Syntax projects that have been realised in London.
The participants were privately funded through FFNS foundation for innovation and collaboration.
“The training was excellent: The content and format – with a brief instruction at first along with project specific questions – was well executed along with your instructions of how to model correctly. We’ve now a better understanding about the importance of correct modelling.”
“Thank you for three truly inspiring days! Using our own site from Stockholm was really good.”
