We are The Bartlett: UCL's global faculty of the built environment.
Our sections span the entire area of study and research. Individually, they lead their fields. In partnership, they develop new responses to pressing world issues. As a whole, they represent a world-leading, multidisciplinary faculty, united by the radical spirit of UCL.
Nous sommes The Bartlett. Nos départements couvrent l'ensemble du champ d'étude et de recherche, et chacun, pris indiviuellement, est le chef de file dans son domaine. Et en partenariat les uns avec les autres, ils élaborent de nouvelles réponses aux problèmes urgents du monde. Globalement, ils représentent une faculté pluridisciplinaire de premier rang mondial, unis par l'esprit radical de l'UCL.
His research focuses on understanding the way that the design of the built environment affects the patterns of social and economic behaviour of organisations and communities. How is it that architecture and urban design matter for those that inhabit them? How is it that the spatial design of cities and neighbourhoods leads to the generation of cultural and community identity? Under what conditions do vital and thriving creative communities occur, and under what conditions does crime and urban malaise develop?
In order to investigate these questions he has developed both research methodologies and software tools. These are known as âspace syntaxâ methods. Current research includes the development of agent based simulations of human behaviour, the development of spatio-temporal representations of built environments, investigations of urban spatial networks and the application of these techniques in studies of urban sustainability in the broadest sense, covering social, economic, environmental and institutional dimensions.
