Site planning analysis is a pre-design research activity which focuses on the existing, imminent and potential conditions on and around a project site. It is, in a sense, an inventory of all the opportunities, constraints, issues, and situations, and their interaction at the property where a project may of will be built.

The major role of site planning analysis in design is that of informing us about our site prior to beginning a design concept so that the early thinking about our building or development can incorporate meaningful responses to external conditions.

The Site Planning Analysis course will cover diagramming site information, process and analysis, understanding the concept of space, climatology, circulation and parking systems, plant materials, and conceptual grading and drainage.
