A common approach to evaluating the quality of urban environments in terms of walkability is to measure the accessibility of walking attractors. For this purpose, the information on street network configuration and distribution of walking attractors is required. However, in the early planning stages when not all the necessary data on land use allocation is available, or if the knowledge about the walkability impact of the pure street network configuration is required, this approach is of little ...

An abstract representation of interior space is the foundation for any spatial analysis of human activity in such environments. It must capture high level concepts such as rooms, areas and corridors, but also allow for the discrete appearance of human behaviour (for example two people will not walk through the same corridor in the same way). Within the field of Space Syntax three such representations have been proposed, axial lines, convex spaces and visibility graphs. However none of these repr...

The physical spaces within which organisms live affect their biology and in many cases can be considered part of their extended phenotype. The nests of social insect societies have a fundamental impact on their ability to function as complex superorganisms. Ants in many species excavate elaborate subterranean nests, but others inhabit relatively small pre-formed cavities within rock crevices and hollow seeds. Temnothorax ants, which often nest within acorns, have become a model system for studyi...

Agent-based simulation is one of the core tools of spatial analysis utilised to provide an understanding of space when complex parameters come into play, such as how the visible space changes while traversing a building, or what happens when there is a destination to be reached. This type of simulation has a lot in common with techniques used in video games to create movement trajectories for non-player characters. Although these techniques have been developed over the years to provide more real...

Evidence-based design aims to understand human behaviour so that strategic decisions are well-informed when creating a new space. Workplace research to date has provided interesting insights, but has mostly done so on a case-by-case basis. This approach does not yield generalisable patterns, making results problematic to use in an evidence-based design context. This paper builds upon previous large-scale analysis done by the authors and focuses on two aspects of workplace behaviour – eating and ...

Interaction design is increasingly about embedding interactive technologies in our built environment; architecture is increasingly about the use of interactive technologies to reimagine and dynamically repurpose our built environment. This forum focuses on this intersection of interaction and architecture. --- Mikael Wiberg, Editor

Ubiquitous computing has a vision of information and interaction being embedded in the world around us; this forms the basis of this book. Built environments are subjects of design and architects have seen digital elements incorporated into the fabric of buildings as a way of creating environments that meet the dynamic challenges of future habitation. Methods for prototyping interactive buildings are discussed and the theoretical overlaps between both domains are explored. Topics like the role o...
