In morphological studies analysis, rather than intuitive explanations, of differences pertaining to the man-made environment
requires an understanding of the relational or configurational structure of that specific spatial system. Space
Syntax is a set of techniques for describing and analyzing those relational or configurational properties of man made
environments. Space Syntax tries to clarify these properties and their meanings by mathematical and graphical analysis
to interpret them on a scientific basis. Originally conceived by Prof. B. Hillier and his colloquies in the 1980's as a
tool to help architects simulate the likely affects of their designs, it has since grown to become a tool used in a variety
of research areas and design applications. This study attempts to formulate the various spatial patterns that have been
formed through the history of Trabzon, by means of Space Syntax techniques in a concrete way. It is suggested that the
analysis techniques of Space Syntax, supported by a wide range of knowledge, have contributed greatly in the formulation
of spatial models in concrete form, further intuition, and can be accepted as a useful tool for defining similarities
and differences between different home environments.
