Complexity Theory Methods for Spatial Planning Sizing | Scaling | Connecting | Integrating Johannesburg”

Workshop co-organised by The Urban Morphology and Complex Systems Institute, Wits University and the French Agency for Development.

10-13 March 2014

The workshop will be a contribution to Johannesburg climate change mitigation plan, and will provide spatial planning methods to enhance economic productivity and social inclusiveness at all scales. It will bring to practitioners and students complexity theory methods and tools to articulate density at different scales in Johannesburg urban region with a focus on selected neighborhoods densification.

Methods will span from graphs analysis to determine degrees of connectedness and centralities to density distribution analysis to determine the impact of density on transportation energy.
