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:

  • Blends theory andpractice from the fields of landscape
    architecture, urban planning, architecture, geography, and urban

  • Addresses important sustainability topics, including LEED-ND,
    Sustainable Sites, STAR community index, and climate

  • 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 200 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. New material includes review questions at the
end of each chapter for students as well as early-career
professionals preparing for the ARE, LARE, or AICP exams.
