Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviews of earlier editions of Site Planning noted that: "Whether he is discussing esthetics or pipe sizes, Lynch's writing, conditioned by experience with students, is remarkably clear; but because he is dealing with visual form and spatial relationships, he reassures the reader with hundreds of lucid thumbnail sketches in the margins beside the text; the effect is not unlike an animated film accompaniment." Journal of Architectural Education

Format: Hardcover
I'm amazed that people didn't like this book more... I am also a Land Arch student who had it as an assigned book that was rarely actually assigned. I was thumbing through it in hopes of generating ideas for another class and was amazed at the amount of usable information it contained. Perhaps it is better digested in chunks instead of the whole. I found it great as a reference book.

This is a classic book. I asked several professors in my Landscape Architecture program and they all still refer to this book. I used it extensively this summer while developing my thesis. There are lot of skills this book will help you develop as far as creating a sun/shade diagram and understanding the affect of noise on a landscape. You can find a lot of software programs that will crank out numbers/diagrams for you, but this book helped me understand how the software works. I have more confidence in my software, but I also know how to figure out calculations and create diagrams manually if necessary.

It only got a "love it" cause I passed, but this book was in the condition as described and the content helped me pass the Site Planning exam of the Architectural Registration Exams.

Pretty good book. Kevin lynch is the go-to guy for planning. It may be an older text, but it is worth reviewing
