This paper investigates the hypothesis that the explicit knowledge of spatial configurations may aid intuitive design process. The study will scrutinize the performance of architects solving intuitively a well-defined problem. One group of architects will have experience with spatial configurations rules (Space Syntax) and the other will not have such experience. The design processes will be analysed in terms of cognitive activity, whereas the design outcomes will be evaluated qualitatively in terms of social organization and quantitatively in terms of spatial configurations. The analysis will show that the knowledge of Space Syntax may partially enhance the permeability of design solutions. Book description: This volume contains the refereed papers of the Third International Conference on Design Computing and Cognition (DCC'08), held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. They represent the state-of-the-art research and development in design computing and cognition. They are of particular interest to researchers, developers and users of advanced computation in design and to those who need to gain a better understanding of designing.
