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.
Wir sind The Bartlett. Unsere Abteilungen decken den gesamte Studien- und Forschungsbereich ab. Einzeln betrachtet sind sie jeweils führend in ihrem Feld. In Zusammenarbeit entwickeln sie neue Antworten auf wichtige, weltweite Probleme. Als Gesamtes repräsentieren sie eine weltweit führende, multidisziplinäre Fakultät, vereint durch den fundamentalen Geist, welcher UCL zugrunde liegt.
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.
