Evaluation of Potential Dangerous Corners in Elementary Schools from the Perspective of Space Syntax�
Lately, bullying and criminal incidents occur frequently. School campuses have become unsecure. To assess potential dangerous space on campus will help schools improve and manage dangerous space. This study analyzes potential constitutive characteristics of campus space by three Space Syntax methods, convex maps, axial maps and visibility graphs, in order to evaluate potential dangerous comers. We identified two kinds of potential dangerous comers. One is the space where people feel unsecure, and the other is the location where students have been bullied. We also choose two different spatial types of elementary schools as a case study. The results show: 1) It is shown that Space Syntax can be a method to evaluate potential dangerous space on a campus; convex map has the greatest predictability in identifying unsecure space. Convex maps, visibility graphs, and axial maps separately have notable predictability for bullying locations. 2) The distribution of perceived unsafe spaces has nothing to do with the activities and bullying locations, but is mainly affected by spatial characteristics. Bullying locations are closely related to activity intensity and secondly influenced by spatial characteristics. 3) In contrast to a campus with straight lines and a flat terrain, a campus with curved road lines and a changing terrain easily produces unsecure spaces; permeable walls can eliminate interruptions in the line of sight; bullying incidents take place on campuses, where there is a high intensity of usage.
