How to Read a City –
Space Syntax Tools for Planning Thriving Places

This webinar is about the relationships between the spatial structure of cities and how it determines mobility and land use patterns. What will people continue to do in future and which areas will be suitable for what kind of activities? How will people travel between different parts of the city? What will work best where?

How do we design to influence customer experience and footfall?

Therefore Space Syntax is a useful method to study shopping centres in their unique urban context in site appraisals and design development strategies.
