‘Space Syntax is about empowering intuition with knowledge’ – Peponis at
According to Peponis interface is not only social, but about wider spatial relations and the integrity of the architectural object
John Peponis asks Bill Hillier to rewrite chapter 2 of ‘Social Logic of Space’ to include a more powerful definition of interface
Sonit Bafna suggests a generic imaginitive function of buildings similarly to generic social function at

Thought-provoking keynote by John Peponis on interface as spatial relation and how to bring design back in

@kerstinsailer‘s tweets from 8th #SpaceSyntaxSymposium in Santiago de Chile #SSS8 – wish I was there!
Local sweet speciality in Chile: ‘manjar’. Nom nom nom.
Fascinating comparison of Brasilia and Chandigarh by Fred de Holanda. Chandigarh has repetitive and uninformative configuration
2/2 Four types of cities (Bill Hillier): 3. Non-differentiated eg Beijing F-B-. 4. Strong structural continuity eg New Orleans F+B+
1/2 Four types of cities (Bill Hillier): 1. democratic grid eg Manhattan F-B+. 2. Organic cities like London F+B-.
Cities seem to come in four types: strong foreground (F+) and strong background (B+), F+ B-, F- B+, F- B- according to Bill Hillier
Inspiring keynote by Bill Hillier comparing structure of cities regarding relative strength of foreground and background networks
Wonderful conference setting in Santiago de Chile
