Science-based and human-focused, Space Syntax brings creative, innovative rigour to the process of making cities, urban places and buildings.

"I know that these techniques work from the tough environment of practice. I love the world of analysis, observation, of research, but also passion, imprecision, the hunch. Space Syntax is the testing of the interaction of these opposing worlds."
