Apply Space Syntax to Design a TOD land Use Plan

C. N. Li and Y. K. Hsieh
Abstract—TOD-related studies have mostly come with empirical models and urban design concepts, lacking theoretical basis and perched on pending assessment about whether regional planning is in line with the TOD ideas and orientation. Therefore, how to alter the current TOD patterns by, instead, taking the walking environment as the main appeal in order to shape up friendly living surroundings has become the top issue in the development of Taiwan's TOD cities. In the discussions, this paper tries to explain how to rearrange the land use around MRT stations in order to get people attracted to walking. The main results of this study include proposed integration of TOD land development with the walking environment and, based on the analytical findings, bringing in TOD ideas and concepts for future land development.

Index Terms—Transit-oriented development, space syntax, land use.
