Abstract

The purpose of this research is to (i) examine the effectiveness of an indicator of space syntax, i.e., integration from the empirical perspective and (ii) propose a new way to represent integration. For the first purpose, we examined if the integration of nodes remains the same regardless of the size of a network when they are at the same position at the same shape of a network. This research shows that the integration value did not remain constant, indicating that Hillier's argument that integration can be used as an absolute comparative criterion is not reasonable. This research proposed two more effective ways to represent integration. One is to use an accumulation rate on the basis of the size of integration. The other is to represent integration with a multiple of standard deviation based on the observation findings that the distribution of integration of a network in a certain shape is consistent. The former has an advantage that the ranking of integration of certain nodes can be represented clearly; and the latter has the merit of presenting both ranking and distribution of integration.
