Today we watched the Documentary called “Rivers and Tides – working with Time” which was created by Andy Goldsworthy.

It was so interesting to see how Andy description on site and the use of space for his designs. I have done lots of the site analysis in Arch 24 and Arch 25. As an architect, it is very important to do a site study before making any design. Because our buildings are built on the site, we could not ignore it.

Here are the things I dropped down from the documentary.

The relationship between Water and the Stone, River and the Sea.

Understand the materials.

The plant and the Earth (relationship)

Movement (river, stone, wall)

My conclusion: In my exploration, I think one of the main concerns on site study is people, the circulation of the people. The relationship between the people and the buildings and the sites.
