Al ramtha city in jordan analysis by space syntax

  1. 1. Prepared by: Maram Foad Obaidat shomoo aljizawi Supervised by: Dr. Imad Al-Hashimi.
  2. 2. Al ramtha growth • It started in the center with organic radial growth • The growth reached first ring road • They create a new ring road • The growth expanded towered the 2nd ring road • Then directed in leaner form towered just university
  3. 3. It is started from The center of the city (down town) as any traditional city It is expanding in construction around the center
  4. 4. space syntax • We will use space syntax to simulate the effects of al ramtha city designs on the citizen and visitor who move around in the city.
  5. 5. The important of al ramtha is in the commercial center of the city PROBLEMS • traffic congestion • environmental degradation • unattractive for visitors and inhabitants. • Parking lake • Narrow streets • No pedestrian path • Unplanned land use • Shortage of open space TO • reverse any further degradation of the city center • achieve economic gains • Create safety environment for resident and commercial visitors • conserve the environment • Reduce carbon emission through space syntax • Create sustainable economic
  6. 6. The important of al ramtha is in the commercial center of the city THE CHALLENGE • revitalizing ramtha city center by identifying understanding providing • solutions to problems that have emerged through its recent rapid growth. THE MAIN GOAL IS spatial layout , the social, economic and environmental performance of places. Put future development strategy urban design guidelines for revitalizing the city center .
  7. 7. Space Syntax research has made five key discoveries that demonstrate how spatial layout directly affects: - movement, such that Space Syntax models can be used as strategic traffic modeling tools for vehicle, pedestrian and cycling movement - land use, showing how land use performance is deeply influenced by spatial location - safety, allowing risk to be identified and safer places to be created - land value, demonstrating the influence of spatial networks on property economics - carbon emissions, highlighting the contribution of spatial planning and design to environmental impact.
  8. 8. types of syntactic maps that we will use in al ramtha : • Axial map depicts the least number of axial lines covering all convex spaces of a layout and their connections. We will use the axial map as an application to analyse al ramtha map as 1- urban spaces 2- interior space
  9. 9. Measurements • we will use the four measurements to analyze the spaces of al ramtha. 1. Integration 2. Connectivity 3. Choice 4. Mean depth On two different scales
  10. 10. Methodology • The methodology included analyses at two different scales 1. local scale. 2. Global scale segment map for the entire city by space syntax. integration and choice values to see how the city of Al Ramtha and the commercial center of the town is related to each other.
  11. 11. Global and local scale segment analysis of ramtha city : connectivity integration, rN local integration r400 local integration r800 local integration r1200 local integration r2000 local integration r5000 global integration r10000 choice, rN local choice r400 local choice r800 local choice r1200 local choice r2000 local choice r5000 global choice r1000
  12. 12. Connectivity • It is a static local measure • measures the number of immediate neighbors that are directly connected to the spaces. • It will show you how often a street is connected to another street.

  16. 16. Integration • It is a static local & global measure. • It will describes the average depth of a space to all other spaces in Al Ramtha city • It will describes how easy it is to get to one segment from all other segments. • It will tell you how many times you will turn to reach your location
