Szabolcs Farkas-Páll holds a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from Chelsea College of Arts, UAL and a Master of Science in Space Syntax: Architecture and Cities from The Bartlett, University College London, for which he was awarded a distinction.
Szabolcs’s research interests are principally concerned with the future of placemaking: places that ignite the conversation of change. He is interested in the functioning of complex buildings and how these can foster different types of spatial and social interaction.
His BA project work explored the relationship around existing youth cultures and new approaches for knowledge exchange in educational and public spaces. He pursued this interest during his MSc by looking at night-time economies and how urban lighting can be a potential influence in sustaining and extending the use of public spaces and their varied offerings. He used qualitative and quantitative methods to better understand how people operate at night as individuals and as communities.
Szabolcs joined Space Syntax as a Consultant in September 2022. He has recently been involved in urban regeneration projects in the Middle East and the spatial and economic development of Jeddah and its regions.
