In an urban built environment, on the one hand people behave based on their spatial cognition of the environment spatial behavior in interaction with the environment depends on the spatial cognition. On the other hand many researches have also pointed that spatial configuration as the relational characteristics of the physical elements of environment, influence on the spatial cognition. Based on the methodology proposed, this paper is an attempt to explain and understand the properties and relationships between spatial cognition and spatial configuration of the built environment in the three old Mohallas in Dezful. Spatial cognition by employing of cognitive maps through sketch mapping and interview associated with survey questionnaire for evaluation of the cognitive representations and the concept of legibility has been studied, and spatial configuration by space syntax method for measurement of syntactical properties including parameters of global integration, local integration, connectivity and interpretive parameters, intelligibility and synergy all in all have been studied. In order to achieve the research objectives, analytical / descriptive methods with obtained maps and methods of statistical correlation between the quality parameters of spatial cognition and spatial configuration quantitative parameters have been used. Also, The concept of legibility, as the quality interpretive of the parameter associated with the properties of spatial configuration has been investigated, and the familiarity with environment is also considered as a moderating variable. Externalization Cognitive data, determination of the quantitative spatial properties Dezful’s built environment and to explain relations between them as important findings of this research are considered. To examine the proposed methodology with a variety of analytical capabilities, while offering recommendations for future research include investigation of other achievements.
