In this course we will introduce the essential elements of a neighborhood – physical and functional – that enable it to provide an excellent and holistic quality of life. By the end of this course, you will have the skills to distinguish between real "neighborhoods" vs. "subdivisions and apartment complexes." We'll discuss form and design characteristics of neighborhoods and examine the elements of blocks.

Invited Speaker

Daniel Parolek is a nationally recognized thought leader in architecture, design, and urban planning, known for creating walkable, sustainable communities and designing buildings that reinforce them. He has always had a strong interest in how a mix of appropriate building types can create diverse, accessible neighborhoods. In 2010 this interest culminated in the conception of the term Missing Middle Housing. Over the past 16 years, he has led many communities, small and large, to implement their visions with a new approach to zoning called Form-Based Coding, about which he co-wrote what’s been called “the definitive handbook.”
