Behavioural Space and Urban Pattern

Ing. arch. Jana Zdráhalová, Ph.D.

This paper presents an ongoing research of the relationship between geographic space of a settlement and the behavior of selected group of inhabitants. We use Radotin, a quarter of Prague, as the settlement and women with children as respondents, for whom we construct the behavioural space. By comparing behavioural and geographic spaces we identify cases when people use remoter service even though similar service closer to their home exists. We offer some explanations for their decisions but also suggest further research that incorporates space syntax approach to analyse how different routes to a service can influence its usage.
