Coding Corridors: Opportunities and Challenges

Corridors are carriers of life in a region. They are edges and connectors, necessary passageways whose appearance serves as a bellwether for an area’s health. In this webinar, FBCI President Kaizer Rangwala discusses the particular challenges of planning for corridors. Kaizer looks at the theoretical regional framework of corridors of different scale and context, considering both natural and man-made corridors. He discusses trends and various visions of how to address blight and sprawl, and the role of form-based codes in engaging communities to craft compelling plans for contextual (re)development. He draws upon case studies to convey lessons learned, addressing such topics as edge transitions, building types, and concerns over solar access and views.
