Abstract: Traditional villages are historical sediment of natural environment and humanistic environment, and have unique spatial features. Based on the theory of space syntax and cognitive image, and the method of the field investigation this article explains the internal relation between spatial morphological characteristics and spatial cognition of Qinchuan village. The results show that:(1) Spatial integration value of Qinchuan village has positive correlation with the spatial cognitive image;(2) Intelligible degree of internal space of Qinchuan village is low, and it is hard to understand integrated spatial layout through local spatial morphology rapidly;(3)Cognitive degree of public space of village is high, and higher cognitive degree of public space mostly distributes inboth sides of Qinchuan river with high integrated degree. From the view of the spatial morphological problem and spatial cognitive deviation of Qinchuan village, this article proposes optimized countermeasures: optimizing spatial texture of village, keeping vitality of public space, extracting the genes of cultural landscape and perfecting external transport network.
