Riassunto: Since The Social Logic of Space was published in 1984 Bill Hillier and his colleagues at University College London have been conducting research on how space features in the form and functioning of buildings and cities. A key outcome is the concept of 'spatial configuration' - meaning relations which take account of other relations in a complex. New techniques have been developed and applied to a wide range of architectural and urban problems. The aim of this book is to assemble some of this work and show how it leads the way to a new type of theory of architecture: an 'analytic' theory in which understanding and design advance together. The success of configurational ideas in bringing to light the spatial logic of buildings and cities suggests that it might be possible to extend these ideas to other areas of the human sciences where problems of configuration and pattern are critical.
Descrizione del libro: In this innovative book, Bill Hillier looks at a wide range of architectural and urban problems. Using new techniques of configurational analysis he shows that the patterns of space created by buildings are the key to how buildings and cities work for people.
