Space Syntax methodology is a highly readable and accessible textbook on understanding network representations of space for the purpose of architectural and urban research and design. The textbook addresses Space Syntax theory, both as a conceptual framework and as a tool for thinking the relationship between space and society via the UCL Depthmap programme. The authors give clear explanations of the concepts underlying spatial analyses models and descriptions of how these analyses are applied in the context of architecture and urban research without much reference to complex mathematical formulae. The textbook takes students from the basics of spatial analyses techniques, observation methods and data modelling through to more advanced agent-based modelling. Theoretical introductions for each chapter explain the representations, models and constructs of measurement. Exercises and tips throughout the book allow students to practice using UCL Depthmap. The platform training website launched by Space Syntax Ltd. provides further information on the different terminologies as well as on the application side of Space Syntax in design and consultation.
