This English lecture focuses on professional analytical technique training through the Space Syntax Approach, which differs from the existing real materials tectonic creation and instead asserts the important aspects of immaterial spatial architecture bearing with unique features of void space tectonic exploration. The strength of this methodology either in research issues or in the creative design research area relies on the fact that it can interpret qualitative elements through quantitative representations with evidence based scientific knowledge. It does cope with the departmental training goals of “ability of in depth research on spatial problems and creative way of solution assessing by deploying digital and parametric tools in the architectural and urban design fields”.
This lecture provides students with a parametric analytical tool to study several environmental phenomena and behaviour patterns observed in the existing context. The main goals of this lecture are to introduce the profound digital tool of Space Syntax developed by Bill Hillier to our senior or master level students to allow them to explore the research theme mentioned above. Through this lecture it is possible to urge students to re-examine established spatial theories, such as Defensible Space by Oscar Newman, etc. and to tease out a proper cutting-age ideology for practical references in the fields of architectural domestic design or urban spatial configuration studies and/or design. Problems solving based and scientific research and design exhibit the key philosophy of this digital tool per se.
This lecture proposes to focus on the important and fundamental spatial theory developed by Prof. Bill Hillier that Space is the invisible interface which in effect plays as a driving force for daily encounters of inhabitants and this mechanism should be perceived rather as a metaphor of machine than as a real machine, which only has fixed functions like any mechanical machine (Hillier, 1996, Space is the machine, pp. 376-380). There are three major viewpoints in space syntax approach: immaterial and void spaces; scientific and quantification; phenomenology and social outcomes tendency. The training goal of this lecture has been designed to meet the following educational pedagogy initiated by the Department of Architecture at Tunghai Uni.: To facilitate students’ professional knowledge of parametric thinking to analyze social spatial issues; to strengthen students’ professional ability of parametric making on
spatial and form design through a combination with various parametric tools, such as Grasshopper, Rhino, etc.
