20th July 2017

The 11th International Space Syntax Symposium (SSS11) was held from the 3rd to the 7th July 2017 at the University of Lisbon.

The Symposium was an opportunity to learn about developments in space syntax theory and to share ideas and approaches with researchers and practitioners from around the world.

Space Syntax director, Dr Kayvan Karimi, gave the opening keynote, “The joys and perils of evidence-informed design: space syntax in professional practice”. He highlighted practical case study examples to showcase the benefits of using the space syntax approach as well as ways to overcome the challenges which practitioners typically face when using space syntax in a professional context.
