Mappe Mentali 1: Kevin Lynch

"Kevin Lynch, born in 1918, was a significant contributor to city planning and city design in the twentieth century."

[...] "Lynch sought to determine place legibility by administering an experiment, which consisted of questionnaire surveys, and interviews. [...]

"Lynch took the areas that people found vivid and assigned these areas a high imageability ranking. Imageability, another term introduced by Lynch, is the quality of a physical object, which gives an observer a strong, vivid image. He concluded that a highly imageable city would be well formed, would contain very distinct parts, and would be instantly recognizable to the common inhabitant."
