Drawing a context
A site and context analysis may be made using scale drawings. Often hand drawings are best, as a high level of accuracy is not necessary. Rather, it is the intention that is important. An analysis which identifies, evaluates and communicates the important issues, in a way that can inform a design response is best. It is best to make the analysis commensurate with the issues.
This last one is closer to the point of what I have to say here. A wide view of a whole locality, that is somewhat similar to a scaled strip of elevations, it is a powerful record of Kororareka before the fire. It appeared as a piece to fill in a left over strip in Mr Ashworth's journal, below a drawing of the seat of government.
