Integrating clinic process flow, space syntax and space adjacency analysis: Formalization of computational method in building programming

Integrating clinic process flow, space syntax and space adjacency analysis: Formalization of computational method in building programming

Pramanik, Adetania; Haymaker, John; Swarts, Matthew; Zimring, Craig;

Artigo Completo:

This paper presents a computational space adjacency analysis method by integrating information and analysis from process flow methods used in the healthcare system with space syntax methods used in architecture. These methods involve similar conceptual properties related to activity, space and flow. However, their implementation in the building programming process is disconnected, and relies solely on experience and expert opinions. The basic approach for the integration was by abstracting these similar properties in the process flow diagram, space connectivity diagram, and justified plan graph into nodes and edges representations. A case study of a clinic that is currently in the construction phase was used to develop the integration procedure and comparison analysis with the actual floorplan.
