This paper investigates and introduces the exosomatic visual architecture (EVA) model which have been shown to correlate well with observed pedestrian movement in both building and urban environments. This model is based on view and visual perception of an observer in the space and could be used as an analytical tool in urban design and architecture. The approach of this paper is to give a methodology to analyze the behavior of pedestrians in a built environment depending on the syntax and composition of mass and space. For the purpose, this paper explores the basic concepts and definitions of EVA model first. Then by applying the chosen methodology and comparing the results with real inputs of pedestrians itinerary choosing, the model has been tested in both schematic samples and a real urban design project.
