Building a Form-Based Code
Form-based codes encapsulate code drafting and design standards for contextual zoning policy. This track, taught by course instructor Norman Wright, teaches what it takes to build successful form-based codes using an iterative, testable model developed with low-cost tools. Wright covers concepts critical to developing the foundation with a form-based code example based on a hypothetical city. The track also provides instruction on how to use SketchUp and other urban design software to effectively convey the form-based code and urban design guidelines to colleagues and the public. Students will be introduced to a “Do-It-Yourself” framework for creating low-cost form-based codes.
