Dino Borri and Domenico Camarda, Department of Architecture and Urban planning, Politecnico di Bari, Italy

Meanings and roles of memories and creativity in spatial organizations are raising increasing attention among scholars and professionals. Creativity in cognition-oriented spatial studies is gradually seen as a normal feature of an organization. This thesis is supported, e.g., by the evidences on the role of memory in the most creative parts of the activity of architects, combined with exceptional association abilities representing the real bulk of creativity.

The present paper addresses the discussion of such issues, by analysing case studies of single-agent and multi-agent spatial organization under two levels of spatial navigation and space design. The paper explores possible modelling approaches and system architectures supporting cognition-oriented activities in spatial organizations.
