Configurational Analysis. Exploration, development and application
The Configurational Analysis techniques are based on the analysis of the relationship between the
spatial elements of the urban grid. The activity, based on the theory introduced by Bill Hillier (UCL)
under the name of Space Syntax in the mid-80s, and followed by numerous research groups around
the world, has received numerous awards and has led to a significant refinement of operational
techniques, including the processing of the model called Ma.PPA (Mark Point Parameter Analysis),
built at the laboratory LISTA of the Department, which allows immediate interaction with the GIS
environment and the possibility of extending the analysis to altimetry aspects (3D MA.PPA).
