This paper uses Shannon’s entropy of information to measure linkographs of twelve design sessions which involved six architects in two separate design processes. In one they were not allowed to sketch (blindfolded condition), and in the other they were allowed to sketch. A previous study showed that the architects’ overall cognitive activity in the blindfolded condition dropped below their activity in the sketching condition, approximately after 20 minutes (half way) during the timeline of the… CONTINUE READING
