"The rate of change of one's own body image was studied during the "subjectivization" process of the environment. According to our general hypothesis, thanks to its structure and variety as well as its firm or flexible boundaries, such a rate determines the degree of separation between one's own "Self" and the surrounding space, and influences the evaluation and the awareness of this space. The research was carried out on 169 first year students in Psychology and Architecture, by means of projective tests and graphic representation of private and public spaces, and allowed us to maintain a relation between the body experience, cognitive style and space representation."
