This paper reflects upon the theory and method of space syntax from the perspective of the discipline of human geography. It does so in order to address the question: what is problematic about space syntax from a social scientific point of view? In this context the paper seeks to answer a second question: what is new – indeed revolutionary – about space syntax? The discussion contrasts space syntax with mainstream architectural/planning practice, with examples taken from current urban planning projects in Sweden.
