1st international symposium & workshop on regeneration & analyses of spacial strategies

Introduction of the Symposium

As you know today's world is rapidly growing and evolving in various sciences, architecture and urbanism are not exceptions. One of the branches of architecture and urbanism that has made remarkable progress in the past two decades in the process of urban dynamics modeling and citizen’s behavioral study is the Space Syntax theory and its methodology.

On the other hand, considering the importance of urban and architectural events and activities and in terms of their scope , as well as the consequences of any architectural and urban planning action in all filds of urban construction, planning and design; all of the plans, policies, and decisions of urban management will be affected in present and the future. Therefore, any concern in all areas of these fields, namely in design, and future modelling, will have great importance. Following that not only in will direct to the Macroeconomic savings, but also it makes it easier to deal with what has not yet happened for any easier planning, design and policy in more real vision and also more accessible.

Regarding and considering the necessity of providing a proper context and more familiarity with the method of analysis and reading the space through the space syntax, for specialists, practitioners as well as researchers (professors and students) of Architecture and Urbanism in Iran and also in order to benefit from the experiences of individuals and Experts from other countries; as well as Iranians, we decided to look at this concepts and concerns in a practical local vision  but in collaboration with internal public and private sectors and research institute, as well as the University of Lisbon of Portugal and its Center for Research in Architecture, Urbanism and Design (CIAUD), one of the largest research centers in the Portugal. Following this, the first international symposium and workshop on "Regeneration and Analysis of Spatial Strategies” will be held in Tehran in December 2019.

Considering what mentioned the Secretariat of this International Symposium with pleasure invites all the experts, specialists, students, researchers and scientists of the scientific institutes and  R&D centers to participate in this scientific event.
