Books on Site planning and circulation?

kapawpav

When it comes to designing campuses, etc, efficient site planning and circulation, especially vehicular, are kind of tricky for me. Please do suggest me some books that I can read to improve knowledge on site planning. I would be even more grateful if you pointed out some examples of good site planning for me to take inspiration from. Thank you in advance.

You probably should have started your research earlier then. Don't be lazy and crowd source.

I did do my fair share of research, I still wanted suggestions on books and material that I probably missed. I'm not being lazy, and I'm merely using a platform that is made for discussions to learn more from. I'm not asking you to do my homework :)

I would like to suggest this course

It is delivered online by MIT, it is self-paced and free of charge. It introduces the subject quite thoroughly, provided of course that you have sufficient time to engage with it.

Campus: An American Planning Tradition by Paul Turner is an excellent architectural-historic overview, though it won't get you a whole lot on technical aspects, I'm afraid.  I consumed it thoroughly while doing my thesis.

A bunch of years later I was at an SAH conference in Pasadena and happened to meet Paul on a walking tour of... the Cal Tech campus.  What a treat that was.  And what a nice man.
