Form-Based Codes for Architects

Form-Based Codes for Architects is an intensive one-day class, in which architects learn how to work with an FBC.  The course provides an overview of the principle logic of a form-based code, from its necessary foundation in a place-based community vision to its regulatory emphasis on the public realm.  The course will combine lecture and classroom discussions.  Participants also examine common misconceptions about form-based codes and the legal basis for form-based codes.

There is no prerequisite for Form-Based Codes for Architects.  However, for an introduction to the basics of form based codes, we encourage you to review the content of our FBC101 Online course series.
