Urban Design

Course Format: Online / Virtual Classroom / Webinar
School/Trainer: LearnVirtual

While project teams are usually concerned primarily with their projects issues, many of the design choices they make affect the community beyond their projects property lines. Designs that are sensitive to urban design issues strengthen the communities in which they are located. Rules influence the design of a buildings shell and therefore the exterior of a building. This 3-hour interactive online course explores the essential code-related elements of massing and enclosure. The course covers such massing issues as total size, size per floor, total height, and building shape. The second part of the course looks closely at wall and window design and details.

This course is the third in the Cracking the Codes serieswhich looks at developing and designing better projects, aided by the accumulated knowledge that regulations represent. The series suggests the radical notion that, far from being a hindrance, regulations strengthen design when understood and used properly. It shows them as lessons learned through centuries of skilled craftsmanship and tragic building failures, lessons far too valuable to be ignored or marginalized.
