  • P. Nourian (Creator)
  • S. Rezvani (Creator)



SYNTACTIC (Designing with Space Syntax) is a plugin for Grasshopper© made by Pirouz Nourian and Samaneh Rezvani at TU Delft, Faculty of Architecture, Department of Architectural Engineering + Technology. This toolkit is also known as SpaceSyntax_for_GenerativeDesign is compatible with SpiderWeb, invented by Richard Schaffranek. We hereby thank Richard, for all we have learned from his very interesting tool kit.

Space Syntax is an umbrella name for a group of theories and methods that associate spatial configurations in architecture and built environment with behavioral patterns of people. To learn more about Space Syntax and other Network Analysis methods, I invite you to read my PhD dissertation CONFIGRAPHICS .
