In the theory of spatial design, the graphic representation of spaces has more than a documentary value; the mapping of spaces opens up an altered – and perhaps unfamiliar – perspective onto architecture and the city, and consequently a deepened understanding of its forms of spatiality. The stages of a city’s spatial history, for example, can be represented, or reflections pertaining to the theory of space visualized in relationship to architecture. To the extent that the mapping of space leads toward topological and typological fundamentals, and consequently toward analytical and conceptual prerequisites for designing and for the design, it can be characterized and understood as a design method.
