The Syntax of (un)successful Space: an examination and evaluation of urban and architectural space as (un)successful social condenser – the case of Kosovo in comparison to global precedents

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

As territorial beings, we do define space, and on the other hand space influences and defines many of our activities and behaviors as individuals, communities, and societies. Why some spaces are more successful to be socially active than others, how do they integrate and connect? This paper will use Space Syntax as an analytical tool to investigate and evaluate relationships between spatial layouts and a range of social patterns in comparison to spatial patterns and models. The layouts of (especially) residential and urban spaces in Kosovo have shifted dramatically within a new set of global constraints, local politics, economics, and social and cultural changes. Hence, this paper will investigate, examine and extrapolate patterns of have space in Kosovo formed and performed within these shifts and how it stands in comparison to global precedents for its capacity to be a successful social condenser. Moreover, through evaluation of the existing patterns, this paper sets a framework for retrofitting and designing better spaces.
