title Beyond Distance: New criteria for spatial configuration of design
source Digitizing Architecture: Formalization and Content [4th International Conference Proceedings of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2009) / ISBN 978-99901-06-77-0], Manama (Kingdom of Bahrain), 11-12 May 2009, pp. 17-28
summary Simple Euclidean distance has thus far been the dominating concept in analyzing architectural and urban spaces. This paper demonstrates that distances between spaces cannot be measured solely in terms of simple Euclidean Distance, but instead other kind of distances (e.g. City block, Chebyshev, Minkowski, Canberra distance or Angular separation) are shown to offer new meaningful insight into space and its denotation. Several issues are raised in light of these new measures such as how much are these measurement techniques influenced by what counts as "space"? In addition is there a difference between the physical distance and the human perception of distance? More importantly, how do these methods alter design or offer a new process of designing? Applications and analysis is applied to classical examples of architecture.
