Code manipulation

B. Yatt

I'm looking for case studies, anecdotes, etc. of projects where the designers' familiarity with codes and consequent ability to make use of exceptions, incentives, etc. allowed designs that otherwise might not have happened. Need examples from Zoning, Building, Accessibility, & Historic Preservation Codes. Appropriate submittals will be used in upcoming book. Illustrations and photos welcome. Sources will be acknowledged. Mail to: Barry D. Yatt, AIA. 1707 N. Nelson St., Arlington, VA 22207, USA.
