The literature on spatial environments concerns many disciplines, and the present study aims at broadly contributing from an urban-planning view. Indoor and outdoor townscapes, because of their dynamic complexity, seem to offer ill-structured holds to the typical spatial behaviour of an agent. Therefore, a question arises about the 'fundamentals' of spacescapes from the point of view of the needs of living and moving agents. Following this thread, the paper deals with the diagnosis and the control of a structured simple space, a minimum arc of a graph. Conditions, situations, elements, behaviours are explored in their spatial-temporal dimensions, subsequently aiming at setting up a system architecture to let spatial agents control their de-structuring impact. Text analysis and interpretation are applied to a questionnaire survey, exploring low level (movement orientation) and high level (memories and fantasies) behaviours in human interaction with a space. The experiment is developed in a large class of students from the Technical University of Bari, daily using a long and apparently amorphous corridor to reach professors' offices for explanations.
