Space Syntax’s international reputation is based on a highly creative use of technology to identify the essential design features of urban and building design projects and simulate their impacts. These are typically aspects of the location, linkages, layout, land use and landscaping of a project that influence human activity and, in doing so, drive the performance of places. An example of this was the company’s consultancy to the London 2012 Olympic Park Legacy Project. In every case, Space Syntax aims to boost ‘returns’ of many sorts: land value; rental income from, for example, enhanced footfall in retail areas; safety in streets and buildings; and increased interaction between people in buildings.
