[[Site] is a set of conditions that exist, either concrete or abstract, which influence the design of a project giving context to form.]
These conditions that occur both naturally and man-made on the site guide and determine main tenets of the design. Such tenets give rise to the context for the place of man.
A designed response is the reaction to the conditions of the site in order to provide context to the form of a structure. Without context, be it philosophical or environmental, a proposal is no longer Architecture but a building.
Architecture has a driving force or idea, a building is simply a constructed shell of materials.
