Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Space syntax analysis can be used to show pedestrian or vehicular density and flow for streets in a city. Luleå, a city in the northern parts of Sweden, has been used to create axial maps which shows the density and flow. This master thesis for architectural engineering describes the fundamentals of space syntax and shows the process of setting up axial maps. Using the integration values for each street relations between density and crime, road maintenance, retail distribution are examined. This thesis offers a short guideline with seven steps to completing a space syntax analysis and ends with a discussion on why some discrepancies might arise.
