About Alan Penn:

Alan is a former Dean of the Bartlett faculty of the Built Environment (2009-19), he is a founding director of  Space Syntax Ltd,  a UCL knowledge transfer spin out with a portfolio of over 100 applied projects per year, including whole city masterplans, neighbourhood development plans and individual buildings. He is a member of the Space Syntax Laboratory within The Bartlett School of Architecture. He is a founding trustee of the  Shakespeare North Trust  a charity which is constructing a new Shakespearian theatre and educational centre in Prescot outside Liverpool. He is currently serving as Chief Scientific Advisor at the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

His research focuses on understanding the way that the design of the built environment affects the patterns of social and economic behaviour of organisations and communities. How is it that architecture and urban design matter for those that inhabit them? How is it that the spatial design of cities and neighbourhoods leads to the generation of cultural and community identity? Under what conditions do vital and thriving creative communities occur, and under what conditions does crime and urban malaise develop?

In order to investigate these questions he has developed both research methodologies and software tools. These are known as ‘space syntax’ methods. Current research includes the development of agent based simulations of human behaviour, the development of spatio-temporal representations of built environments, investigations of urban spatial networks and the application of these techniques in studies of urban sustainability in the broadest sense, covering social, economic, environmental and institutional dimensions.
