Analysing co-presence and urban affordances

Patterns of pedestrian movement flows, co-presence, and staying in public spaces in Stockholm, will be analysed using smart phone information, questionnaires and more. The goal is to identify how urban characteristics, including configurative properties, physical features, land use, and spatiotemporal variations, correspond with how the city is used and patterns of co-presence. The study will highlight differences across the city in terms of accessibility to urban resources, and to other people. Analyses are designed to respond to how social processes and segregation phenomena relate to architecture, urban design and planning.
