Andres Duany entices you to take a closer look at the Smart Code Manual as he describes its urgent relevance, simplicity of use and planning flexibility. The SmartCode is a model transect-based planning and zoning document based on environmental analysis. It addresses all scales of planning, from the region to the community to the block and building. The template is intended for local calibration to your town or neighborhood.

As a form-based code, the SmartCode keeps settlements compact and rural lands open, literally reforming the sprawling patterns of separated-use zoning. He enables viewers to develop their own capabilities in writing codes for projects and municipalities and to take a leadership role using the Smart Code Manual as the tool for educating others and ones self.
