This site analysis template will initially aid in the building's placement, orientation, form, and materiality but will later influence its structure, sustainability, and procurement route. The site analysis template below was created with a drawing tablet and Adobe Photoshop. Architectural site analysis evaluates a specific location's physical, mental, and social characteristics to develop an architectural solution that addresses and improves both its internal and external context. Every site is distinct and will include various complex elements such as varying topography, watercourses, trees, plants, habitats, and weather patterns, to name a few. All of these factors will and should impact an architect's design process and decision-making.
