Dover Kohl is working with Castillo Arquitectos to prepare a form-based code for the municipality of Curridabat, Costa Rica. A hands-on session fully open to the public was the first step toward achieving that goal. The standing-room only session was a big success and broke barriers for Latin American planning. The design team will take the ideas gathered from the community, and synthesize them into a vision for the future. The ideas gathered during the week-long charrette will form the basis for the form-based code.
