              Architectural Planning

                   ArcAura begins to work when the site, the type and cost of a building have been determined.

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

― Benjamin Franklin

Planning is the process of particularizing and, ultimately, of harmonizing the demands of environment, use, and economy. This process has a cultural as well as a utilitarian value, for in creating a plan for any [social] activity the

architect inevitably influences the way in which that activity is performed.


The arrangement of the axes of buildings and their parts is a device for controlling the effects of sun, wind, and rainfall. The sun is regular in its course; it favours the southern and neglects the northern exposures of buildings in the Northern Hemisphere, so that it may be captured for heat or evaded for coolness by turning the axis of a plan toward or away from it.

Within buildings, the axis and placement of each space determines the amount of sun it receives. Orientation may control air for circulation and reduce the disadvantages of wind, rain, and snow, since in most climates the prevailing currents can be foreseen. The characteristics of the immediate environment also influence orientation: trees, land formations, and other buildings create shade and reduce or intensify wind, while bodies of water produce moisture and reflect the sun.



The planning of a building includes numerous factors that impacts the user of the building. Arc-Aura attends to this in detail and with experience thus getting the end structure not just beautiful in appearance but useful beyond unaided human measure.
