Our mission, vision & role

Space Syntax Limited’s mission is to enhance the social, economic and environmental performance of buildings and urban places by developing, disseminating and applying a science-based, human-focused approach to their planning, design and operation.

Our vision is of a built environment that works well for the people that use it. This requires the right balance of interconnectedness, movement, awareness, encounter and exchange at every scale. It means the delivery of places in which different kinds of human activity can thrive.

We exist to provide knowledge and leadership to support the development, dissemination and application of this approach.

“It’s totally clear to me when I see Space Syntax’s work that l believe in it.”
