Angularity (Space Syntax)

From Design Computation
Jump to: navigation, search

Angularity is defined as angular change that is likely to have an impact on the way people walk and navigate through a system. Smaller angular changes in the direction of movement should be considered as minor shifts from one space to another, but significant changes in direction could by comparison be seen as deliberate acts in navigation. It is conjectured that people will choose the route which will result in the minimum angular change in direction.
