Space syntax is a descriptive theory of the perceptual and functional affordances of inhabited space that are relevant to its cognitive and social intelligibility, thus to its planning, design and use. It deals with the representation and quantification of spatial relationships embedded in buildings and cities.
These theories and techniques contribute to a range of interdisciplinary studies, including: spatial cognition at the scale of buildings and cities; the management and organization of work; informal learning in museums; the interaction of street connectivity, land use and patterns of movement in cities; urban and building morphology and history; studies in design cognition and design formulation.
