CSD: Introduction

The course “Cognition in Studio Design – analytic tools for evidence-based design” will discuss readings of space syntax (Bafna, 2003) , navigation issues (Carlson, Hölscher, Shipley, & Dalton, 2010) as well as functions and applications of spatial cognition (Montello & Raubal, 2013) .

To compute space syntax DepthmapX will be used.
