This new edition of Kevin Lynch's widely used introductory textbook has been completely revised, and is also enriched by the experience of Lynch's coauthor, Gary Hack. For over two decades, Site Planning has remained the only comprehensive source of information on all the principal activities and concerns of arranging the outdoor physical environment. Now, ninety new illustrations double the visual material, and one hundred pages of new appendices cover special techniques, provide references to more detailed technical sources, and put numerical standards in a concise form. An introduction summarizes the site planning process. This is followed by a case study of a typical professional project and ten chapters that provide new material on such subjects as user analysis, programming, site planning for built places, housing tenures and their planning implications, cost estimating, mapping, the reading of air photographs, site design for housing in developing countries, design strategies, and environmental impact analyses--all illustrated with photographs and line drawings and with Lynch's characteristic marginal sketches.
