Course description


Spatial behavior in urban environment


This course deals with the question of how aspects of spatial behavior of people in cites - perception and cognitive spatial representation, spatial patterns of everyday space use, pedestrian movement and interaction between social groups -  are related to the  properties of the urban environment.  The spatial behavior of people, as individuals and social groups, will be analyzed and discussed with respect to two components of the built urban environment: the physical, functional and symbolic characteristics of its elements and their spatial configuration. The discussion will include consideration of distance types (topological and metric), forms of visual and physical accessibility and spatial configuration's properties for movement patterns. Movement modeling.
