SITE ANALYSIS JAMES LAGRO PDF

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: Blends theory andpractice from the fields of landscape architecture, urban planning, architecture, geography, and urban design Addresses important sustainability topics, including LEED-ND, Sustainable Sites, STAR community index, and climate adaptation Details the objectives and visualization methods used in each phase of the site planning and design process Explains the influence of codes, ordinances, and site plan approval processes on the design of the built environment Includes more than illustrations and eight case studies of projects completed by leading planning and design firms Site Analysis, Third Edition is the ideal guide for students taking courses in site analysis, site planning, and environmental design.

By responding to inherent site opportunities and constraints, context-sensitive development--and redevelopment--creates attractive and pedestrian-friendly places to live, work, and play. With several project case studies from leading design firms and more than illustrations, the Second Edition ref lects the state of the art in sustainable land planning and site design. Some of the topics covered include: Site selection and programming Mapping of physical, biological, and cultural attributes Site suitability analysisConceptual designDesign developmentFeasibility studies Site plan reviewWhether you are a student, a practitioner studying for a licensing exam, or a member of a local board or commission that reviews land development proposals, Site Analysis: A Contextual Approach to Sustainable Land Planning and Site Design will help you better understand the linkages between existing site and contextual conditions--and the sustainable design of the built environment.
