Biblio (88) Space is the machine

biblio88-space is the machine

This electronic edition (published in2007) of Bill Hillier’s work “Space is the Machine” gives an insight on the philosophy applied by Space Syntax when analysing the urban space. How people move in space and how the links between them are influenced by architecture are themes subject to research and tentative answers in that work. Although it is not enunciated as such, I cannot prevent this book from raising in my mind a central issue for the modern movement, the possibility to organise the city in stacked levels (to which such a method would produce, I imagine, an answer such as… “it depends on…”). Interesting reading.
