"What is here? What will nature permit us to do here? What will nature help us to do here?"
- Wendell Berry
Enduring and cost-effective site developments are informed by thorough evaluation of the existing conditions of the site. Depth and breadth of analysis is dependent upon the scope of the project and is prioritized around client goals and site challenges/opportunities. Proper analysis helps us avoid the all too common mistakes that occur when trees are planted in sub optimal soil conditions, buildings are not sited to take advantage of the sun's path and innumerable other pitfalls of development-without-analysis. In addition to informing our design work, analysis is also used to produce spatial graphics such as trail maps, site brochures and other communications.
