Welcome Message

2013 International Space Syntax Symposium, Seoul, Korea
31 October ~ 3 November, 2013

The Space Syntax symposia are now recognised as an established event on the calendar of international architectural research, a tradition that combines a scientific inquiry with architectural innovation, creativity and excellence. This combination is at the heart of the organiser's intentions for the Seoul symposium who will extend this tradition into 2013 and beyond. Each symposium takes on the relevant issues of contemporary urban environments and the demands of space and sustainability in our living cities...


NOTE : Detailed session program is now available. Click here.


The 9th International Space Syntax Symposium will be held in two places in Seoul: the first two days at Seoul City Hall and Seoul History Museum in the city centre area, in conjunction with Seoul Urban Design 2013-international ideas competition for students cohosted by Seoul Metropolitan Government, and the last two days at Sejong University. We are planning to operate shuttle buses for your convenience, between the city hall and the museum on 1 November and also between the city hall and Sejong University on 2-3 November. All shuttle buses will start leaving at 08:15 in front of the city hall (or the Hotel President).

After the morning session at Seoul History Museum on 1 November, you are expected to walk, under our staff members' guidance, one of the most famous scenic alleys in Seoul to return back to Seoul City Hall (annex), where we will have lunch and panel discussion time. Seoul City Tour will start in front of the annex building immediately after the panel discussion.
