Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book fills a niche as an introductory text for site designers and land use planners." ("APA Journal," Spring 2002)

From the Back Cover

The complete guide to site analysis—for better plans and better projects

Context-sensitive site planning leads to better development proposals and, ultimately, to higher quality built environments. By responding to inherent site opportunities and constraints, context-sensitive development—and redevelopment—creates attractive and pedestrian-friendly places to live, work, and play.

The expanded and extensively revised new edition, Site Analysis: A Contextual Approach to Sustainable Land Planning and Site Design retains the earlier edition's emphasis on the site-planning process. With several project case studies from leading design firms and more than 180 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 analysis

  • Conceptual design

  • Design development

  • Feasibility studies

  • Site plan review

Whether 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.

This book contained a lot of information. On its own, the book was great, but not very helpful if you are using it for the LARE. It was listed on CLARB's website as a source for study material. I was able to find the information in the book elsewhere (Time savers & Graphic standards), so it was not helpful in that way.

I am confused as to why CLARB felt that another book ($$$) recommendation was needed.

Still, nothing against this book. It is good, but not for the LARE.

Great book. This should be one of the first books new Landscape Architecture (or engineering or architecture) students should read. In my opinion, you need to know almost everything about your site and the surrounding areas in order to execute the intended program.
