A critical factor in environmental decisions is today spatial cognition developed by agents both in activities of relation and use of space, and in creative activities of environmental design and planning. From an investigation on the spatial cognitions of agents in the degraded neighbourhoods of Bari, as well as on spatial-based creative reflections by well-known architects, this work integrates expert and common-sense knowledge approaches, towards the building up of urban decision support models.
Keywords: Decision support systems; Spatial cognition; Multi-agent approach; Urban context
