Urban Design for Character-Based Environments

Featuring Geoff Dyer

$15 > Now available on-demand as a recorded session

So you have a form-based code adopted or close to it, and now people are getting their heads around how to design under the new zoning ordinance? This session shines a light on urban design, once a form-based code is adopted locally. Walking through lessons learned in a number of real life case studies, Geoff Dyer, Principal and Lead Designer at PlaceMakers, and President of PlaceMakers Canada, will examine various categories of infill, brownfield, and greenfield. The steps of the master planning process will first be considered, followed by methods of form-based urban design in a variety of settings.

A sought-after urban designer throughout North and Central America, Geoff has distinguished himself with place-sensitive work in distinctive environments. Over the past several years he has created innovative town plans and coding solutions for public and private clients in Alberta, British Columbia, and Manitoba, including Revelstoke, BC; Chestermere, AB; Calgary, AB; Red Deer County, AB; Windwalk / Okotoks, AB; County of Rocky View Hamlet Districts, AB; East Village, AB; Vintage Landing Resort, Kelowna BC; and Winnipeg, MB.
