During this stage of a building project, the site aspects are researched and analyzed.  The understanding of the site is not only crucial to the building location as a whole but also the spaces within the project as far as solar and view orientations.  The context of a building often generates the unique qualities of a project,  meshing it with the landscape and environment.
