title The Didactic Aspect of Ars Combinatoria in Architectural Design - Employing syntactic ("space syntax") formulations to communicate architectural design to students of Architecture.
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 525-530
summary This paper presents educative aspects of visualization techniques based on an idea by B. Hillier to illustrate architectural forms with the space syntax theory. It explores and renders the technique of transformation and implementation of syntactic analysis in order to convey to students of Architecture spatial concepts and to differentiate spatial arrangements that present understandably similarities and differences. The technique is applied to plans of well-known examples from the history of Architecture and illustrates to a sufficient extent the theoretical interpretations taught in the architectural design studio.
