Final Activity Report Summary - URBANSCAPE SYNTAX ("Measuring" Urban Landscape - From hermeneutic approach to sociological / spatial analysis)

The aim of this research is to establish a methodological tool based on a dual, syntactical approach and on a hermeneutic system, taking in consideration the multiplicity of perceptions linking societies to their surrounding urban landscape. Concretely this research associates on a theoretical and practical point of view, investigations made on built environment by the Space Syntax Laboratory of London University College and the works done about landscape and its mutation by the laboratory and post-graduate courses 'Gardens, landscapes, territories' of the School of Architecture of Paris la Villette. By this way, our objective is to formulate an original methodology and primary tools, which could be used and generalised to analyse urban landscape throughout the world, and also to propose some solutions for their sustainable change.

Presently, we have redefined through the evolution of history the concept of milieu, the relations of a society to his environment who is a key concept of this research. We have also started a research to link the evolution of the milieu's understanding and the evolution of the urban and architecture theories. At the same time, we have organised a seminar at the end of September 2004 in Japan gathering some of the main specialists to discuss the establishment of methodological tools based on a dual, syntactical approach and on a hermeneutic system, taking in consideration the multiplicity of perceptions.
