Site Analysis: Informing Context-Sensitive and Sustainable Site Planning and Design
The process-oriented guide to context-sensitive site selection, planning, and design
Sustainable design is responsive to context. And each site has a unique set of physical, biological, cultural, and legal attributes that presents different opportunities and constraints for alternative uses of the site. Site analysis systematically evaluates these on-site and off-site factors to inform the design of places—including neighborhoods and communities—that are attractive, walkable, and climate-resilient.
This Third Edition of Site Analysis is fully updated to cover the latest topics in low-impact, location-efficient design and development.
This complete, user-friendly guide:
