Blending theory with application, Site Analysis offers a cross-disciplinary perspective on the evolving practice of designing sustainable built environments. Information on understanding existing site conditions and context-sensitive design teaches readers how a thorough site analysis can create meaningful places and promote sustainability through energy, water, and natural resource conservation. The new Third Edition is fully updated throughout to include coverage of the latest sustainability topics. Additional new material includes a chapter on site plan review and design review, as well as case studies about site-scale planning and design, infill redevelopment of urban and suburban sites, and smart growth. Review questions at the end of each chapter serve as a valuable resource both for students learning about site and land use development for the first time and for professionals preparing for the ARE, LARE, or AICP exams.
