2009 (English)In: urbanism & urban qualities: New Data & Methodologies / [ed] Jonna Majgaard Krarup, Thomas Sick Nielsen, Henrik Harder, Ålborg: Ålborg Universitet , 2009, 25-30 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Spatial and material form, the tools and modes of architects, participate in shaping our lives in many ways which are not detirminate but strongly influential. One of the ways in which it does this is by spatial configuration - that is, the setup of relations between spaces - which responds to and describes social relations as well as potentials, possibilities, restrictions, and suggestions. This both through practical and communicative means, and in a great many ways. Research at sad tries to focus more specifically at these components of the physical environment, and some intriguing results have been produced both when it comes to buildings and urban environments. Critical for these findingshave been the involvement of different theories and methods that complement one another, and the development of new models of analysis. This presentation aims to briefly present some of these models and results.
