Space is the Machine: A Configurational Theory of Architecture (Anglais) Broché – 5 novembre 1998
Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
Since The Social Logic of Space was published in 1984 Bill Hillier and his colleagues at University College London have been conducting research on how space features in the form and functioning of buildings and cities. A key outcome is the concept of 'spatial configuration' - meaning relations which take account of other relations in a complex. New techniques have been developed and applied to a wide range of architectural and urban problems. The aim of this book is to assemble some of this work and show how it leads the way to a new type of theory of architecture: an 'analytic' theory in which understanding and design advance together. The success of configurational ideas in bringing to light the spatial logic of buildings and cities suggests that it might be possible to extend these ideas to other areas of the human sciences where problems of configuration and pattern are critical.
Biographie de l'auteur
Bill Hillier is Emeritus Professor of Architectural and Urban Morphology at the Space Syntax Laboratory, University College London. He is a founder, owner and director of Space Syntax Limited. As the original pioneer of the methods for the analysis of spatial patterns known as ‘space syntax’, he is the author of The Social Logic of Space (Cambridge University Press, 1984, 1990) which presents a general theory of how people relate to space in built environments, ‘Space is the Machine’ (CUP 1996), which reports a substantial body of research built on that theory, and a large number of articles concerned with different aspects of space and how it works. He has also written extensively on other aspects of the theory of architecture. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché.

Personal Thoughts on Space Is the Machine
le 28 septembre 1998 - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am a graduate student in the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University and this book was required for an Urban Design and Planning Class. I have read the book three times and am writing a lengthy research report based on the book. I have found the book to be very beneficial to the understanding of Spatial Analysis and why people use space as they do. It is a very complex and cumbersome read, however, it is extremely beneficial to those studying urban planning and building design. It was an excellant addition to my library and I recommend it to other colleagues in my field of Architecture. Bill Hillier brings up many points which support his theories and gives excellant graphics throughout the book to help explain the concepts he presents. His models have been an influence in the production of my own Master's Thesis and will give an excellant basis to my own aspirations towards design of public buildings and space. He also has another book which precedes this text: the title is The Social Logic of Space. Space Is The Machine is basically the sequel to The Social Logic of Space.

Ever been frustrated? Ever been confused? Ever been disgusted by mediocrity??? Then read Bill Hillier. He is the prophet and this is the Bible of Urban Design and Architecture.
