Type: Competitions / Awards

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): International

Description: The Form-Based Codes Institute (FBCI) is pleased to announce its fifteenth annual award for achievement in the writing and implementation of form-based codes. Form-based codes regulate development to give unity, efficient organization, social vitality, and walkability to our cities, towns, and neighborhoods. They create a predictable, high-quality public realm by using physical form, rather than separation of uses, as the primary organizing principle. Form-based codes address the relationship between building facades and the public realm, the form and mass of buildings in relation to one another, and the scale and types of streets and blocks. This year, FBCI is placing special emphasis on applications for codes that have been adopted for disinvested neighborhoods or communities of color, or that have been drafted by minority professionals.
