SWECO training workshop

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 group. 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 key 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 built projects in London that have benefitted from the Space Syntax approach.

“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.”
