Space Syntax trains individuals & organisations in the use of the Space Syntax approach: from executive training events to advanced-user courses. Our training packages cover the urban planning & building design principles we work to, as well as the methodologies we employ in professional practice.
1. Introduction to Space Syntax principles & methodologies.
2. Understanding the significance of Space Syntax as a human-focused approach to design.
3. Understanding key Space Syntax terminology.
4. Introduction to the mathematics behind the Space Syntax approach.
5. Implementation of Space Syntax principles in professional practice.
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.
