Syntax_101 provides a general introduction to the principles and methodologies used in Space Syntax practice across different scales, from buildings to urban regions.
The training cover three main topics:
– Space Syntax principles
– the methodologies used in Space Syntax analysis
– applications of Space Syntax in professional urban planning & design practice.
