To understand how a city's spatial structure relates to its function, the authors' space syntax research analyzes cities as systems of space created by the physical artifacts of architecture and urban design. This research investigates pedestrian and vehicular movement, land use, social and economic performance, crime, and many other functional aspects of urban systems. The authors describe a conceptual framework that relates degrees of publicness to three aspects of pervasive systems: the interaction spaces the artifacts create, the architectural spaces in which they are situated, and the information they access or exchange.
