title Form-Based Code in Parametric Modelling for Continuous Urban Design
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 33-42
summary This paper analyses parametric modelling in connection with the Form-based Code (FBC) methodology to support continuous design in an urban scale. FBC is an approach to optimize conventional zoning regulations and has been implemented by a number of cities. Akin to a utopian urban design solution, we argue that the FBC is cru- cial to develop main objectives, characteristics, trends and impacts in a design process systematically and logically. Zoning emphasizes ex- cessively on land use and intensity control, however, FBC promotes to (re-)create and predict urban-rural environments through controlling forms. FBC is developing and offers opportunities for flexible coding processes, adjustment of density and seamless public participation. Parametric modelling, being rule based, is a significant step towards a continuous urban design creating a mechanism for FBC. This paper presents a framework to connect parametric modelling with FBC pro- cesses, and how parametric modelling methodologies allow the form- based coding processes to be more impeccable hence being more ap- propriate in the process of continuous design flow.
