Driehaus Form-Based Codes Award
The Driehaus Form-Based Codes Award
Sponsored by the Form-Based Codes Institute
with the Generous Support of the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust
The awards jury’s considerations will include how the code addresses the following questions:
- Will the code deliver a predictable street character (public space)?
- Is the code implementable and will it be relatively easy to use?
- Does this code have relevant and distinguishing features that advance the practice?
- Will this code promote good urbanism (has it resulted in high-quality development activity)?
Submissions are due Friday, February 24, 2017.
Award winners will be recognized at the Congress for the New Urbanism’s 25th Annual Congress in Seattle, Washington, May 3-6, 2017. Winning entries also will be featured on the FBCI website.
Entries must have been adopted into law by a unit of local government. Recently adopted codes, as well as codes adopted in prior years, are eligible for consideration. Entries should be codes intended to foster built results consistent with a community master plan.
Any legally adopted Form-Based Code is eligible for submission. Submissions can be made by local government officials, advisors, consultants or others involved in the development, adoption or implementation of the code. Codes designed, written, adopted or implemented by organizations associated with members of the award jury are not eligible for consideration in 2017.
There is no entry fee. For complete information and full submission requirements, go to the Form-Based Codes Institute website: www.formbasedcodes.org.
The Form-Based Codes Institute is a nonprofit corporation engaged in research, standards setting, outreach and education. Its mission is to advance the knowledge and use of, and develop standards for, Form-Based Codes as a method to achieve a community vision based on time-tested forms of urbanism. The Institute recognizes that a well-crafted Form-Based Code is the most effective type of development regulation for shaping pedestrian-scaled, mixed-use and fine-grained urbanism. FBCI acknowledges and thanks the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust for its support of The Driehaus Form-Based Codes Award.
