Description/Abstract

"Culturally-informed spatial network analysis, achieved through the joint use Hillerian Space Syntax Theory and traditional understandings of place-making in architecture, can enable and facilitate the creation of effective, site-specific social condensers that can ultimately act as a solution to Galata-Pera's post-20th-century problem of community attrition caused by the erosion of traditional commercial culture that historically defined Istanbulite social identity."
