The below diagrams are a taxonomic series in which we apply the methods described here to a series of hypothetical geometric layouts. Interpretation of these results is ongoing and discursive annotations will be added in due course. The mappings above were produced using a methodology established in the context of a research project on Dynamic Three Dimensional Space Syntax Modelling directed by Sophia Psarra at UCL. The project was supported by the UCL Space Group EPSRC platform grant EP/G02619X/1 (P7726).
Study of an autonomous spatial agent progressing through a real-time reconfiguring maze-matrix. Agent behaviours changed in response to modulation of individual spatial ‘desires’ and the ‘discovered’ or observed changing environment. Dependent on variation and combination of desire sets, different movement typologies can be categorised; these have a direct relation back to ancient labyrinth form elements. An emergent, emotive root for the occupation and understanding of spatialities is implied.
Private residential conversion of a first floor flat in a listed Georgian terrace in Notting Hill, West London to provide a high specification ‘bachelorette’ flat. The bathroom was housed in a highly decorated central box, freeing up the flat layout. Strategically placed full height mirrors and hidden lighting were used to enhance a pervasive sense of lightness and increased area, whilst bespoke sliding bookcases rationalised and optimised storage. Completed with Hogarth Architects.
Prototype testing of the responsiveness of high resolution, autonomously visual spatial agents within an active digital environment. This approach uses a geometric basis for the resolution and intersectional calculations of each agent’s ‘isovist’ or visual field, leading to successful pathseeking behaviours.
