SFU CITY252 Designing and Drafting Design Guidelines SFU Continuing Studies (The City Program) Apr 25, 2024 : 9:00 am to 4:30 pm

Good urban design—from the building to the site to the neighbourhood—benefits from strong, clear and well-crafted design guidance, and many planners and urban designers are tasked to draft design guidelines. 

This course will guide you through the challenge of drafting design guidelines in varied contexts—from the elements of urban design performance to structure and the drafting process. This course will also help you make a meaningful contribution to advancing the quality of your local built environment and the development approval process.
