Parallel Spatial Scales: discerning cognitive layers of space
2005 (English)In: Space Syntax 5th International Symposium: Proceedings Volume II / [ed] Akkelies van Nes, Delft: Techne Press , 2005, 373-386 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The idea of working with spatial scales is not new, neither in architecture theory in general nor within space syntax theory - as can be seen in e.g. Hillier (1996) and Read and Budiarto (2003). What this paper attempts, is to make such a discussion and such knowledge more concrete - to begin to find out how, in configurative systems, spatial scales work together, when they appear and if there are regularities in their relationships or uses that can aid our understanding of architecture.
The research and findings presented are what began as a sidetrack, which proved to be of importance, in a research project on how spatial systems work to produce meaning in society - or, at the recently finished stage of a licentiate thesis, more precisely, how the idea of knowledge is produced through the spatial systems of public libraries.
