Sahar khodabakhshi, Amir samiei, Mina ganji
Pages: 33-46


Space Syntax techniques, is a Series of theories and methods that refers to the space phenomenology. And we can name it as one of the most important contemporary methods of space morphology. In the modern era,various methods has been used to Analysis of architectural spaces. Visual method (formal), historical and continental are some of them. Space Syntax method that is used in this research, has a close meaning tocategorizing method phrase in literature. Using of this method become widespread sinceearly seventies in Bartlett school of England. With the effort of Steadman, Bill Hillier and Julian Hanson, whom first introduced this method, a new chapter of morphology in architecture has been opened. This method is technically growing that brighten the importance of using this method. The aim of this present study is an applied research, and the modality and method of this research is descriptive-analytical. Some parts of the theoretical information collected by library research and using of documents and reports. The main goal of the researches involved with this issue is the understanding of relations in space like creating zone boarders, gradating private and public spaces. This technique is one of the useful methods for understanding the space complexity and its transformation due to the design intervention. To achieve this goals briefing charts has been used. In this research, first, the method has been described. And then, usage of space syntax in architecture. At the end, with this method, regional context of Farahzad area in Tehran will be analyzed. with The result of this research,there are someobtained suggestions that at the end, the best suggested solutionwill be offered.
