Spatial Codes


Spatial Codes is a blog analysing the correlation between graphic design and urban space. By analyzing the process of cognition, memory and perception, space and its societal structures and dynamics can be recognized. To understand cities, urban spaces and their dynamics we have to learn to see how these entities receive and use their environment. This is what we think is the visual language of space.

This language underlies certain codes which seem self-evident to its users but irretraceable for outsiders. The true power of civic environments embraces when every user is able to decode the visual language and be than an active part of his or her (urban) environment.
