FBC 201: Placemaking with Form-Based Codes will be held October 29-30, 2019 at the Leesburg Town Hall in Leesburg, Virginia.
During two days, participants gain an in-depth understanding of urban form for a regulatory framework. Instructors show how to create form-based codes that frame the public space. They show how to conceptualize the urban character of a street by drawing upon an area’s historic form. Instructors present design principles through lecture and case study, combining these with “hands-on” participatory exercises to create the basic elements of a form-based code. Participants learn how to create and use building form and public space standards within a regulating plan. The class explores design possibilities for greenfield sites, redevelopment sites, already built-out communities and regional plans. Locally-based panelists discuss real world design challenges.
FBC 101: The ABCs of Form-Based Codes must be completed to enroll in this class.
