ABSTRACT
This article reviews recent contributions in the field of cognitive science in relation to the design of the built environment. First we describe the main theoretical paradigms that have animated the debate on human cognition and behavior over the past decades, and then discuss possible applications of these theories in architecture and urbanism, particularly around our ability to orient and move in the built environment.
