summary Thinking about space and its conception lies at the very essence of architectural design, yet only limited attention has been afforded towards developing and advancing its medium of conception. With the objective of better understanding and shaping spatial design workflows, the study sets its attention on what is widely embraced as the medium of thinking about space and its conception in architectural design: The diagram. The study begins with examining the cognitive affordances of the diagram in architecture design, discusses its limitation, then propose a computational-augmented concept for a new class of diagrams, the polymorphic diagram, to assist spatial thinking and cognition during the conceptual design phase.
