Akkelies van Nes

Arbeids- og kompetanseområde

Professor Dr. Scient. Akkelies van Nes jobber ved institutt for Byggfag, på Høgskolen i Vestlandet i Bergen. 

van Nes er en ledende internasjonal Space Syntax ekspert. Hun ledet den 5th International Space Syntax Symposium som ble holdt på TU-Delft i 2005 (SpaceSyntax2005 (tudelft.nl)) og er leder for den 13. internasjonale Syntax Symposium i Bergen i 2022 (13th International Space Syntax Symposium - Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (hvl.no)). Hun ledet også den første internasjonale online space syntax PhD kongressen i juni 2021, host HVL (1st International Space Syntax Phd Conference 21 June 2021 - Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (hvl.no))

Van Nes har ledet og deltatt i flere internasjonale forskningsprosjekter knyttet til mobilitet og nettverkstrukturer, som å forske på forholdet mellom by-rom og energibruk for transport, by-rom og kriminalitet i nabolag, gateliv, bysentre og økonomisk utvikling, bruk av space syntax i byfornyelse, og utvikler teorier om forholdet mellom strukturene på byrom og bærekraftige transportformer. Kjernen i hennes forskningsaktiviteter er å utvikle og anvende ulike romlige analyseverktøy på bygde miljøer på forskjellige skalaer og teste dem på ulike sosioøkonomiske data, resultater fra annen forskning og energidata.

van nes har vært involvert i følgende EU -finansierte prosjekter: RUFUS (rural future networks 2008-2012, NODES (New Tools for Design and Operation of Urban Transport Interchanges) 2012-2016 og SPACERGY (Space-Energy pattern for smart energy infrastructures, community reciprocities & related governance) 2016-2019.

van Nes utvikler og anvender space syntax i flere ulike disipliner, som for eksempel arkeologi, arkitektur, by geografi, by-sosiologi, eiendomsutvikling, kriminologi, strategisk planlegging, urbanisme, og vei- og gate bygging. Hun anvender space syntax både i forskning, i undervisning og i planleggingspraksis.
