In this course we will review the important role of downtowns, both philosophically and urbanistically. We will present a series of case studies that illustrate the common features of form-based codes for downtowns across a range of scales and contexts, as well as highlight some unique features related to their specific characteristics and complexity.
At the end of this course, you will understand the key considerations of a form-based code for a downtown context: What is the history of the downtown and the existing urban form and design characteristics. Based on that context and community aspirations, what is the vision and plan for future development? What are the coding implications of that plan?
