DESIGN CODES as an INSTRUMENT of CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION in URBAN AREAS
A policy brief for Culture & Creativity EU-Eastern Partnership Programme.
A Design Code is a comprehensive approach to visual solutions and arrangement and formation of the aesthetics of a city’s appearance, which also addresses the problem of accessibility and ease of use of the city and its infrastructure. The application of design codes is becoming a widespread practice in cities around the world, but in Ukraine this practice is still underdeveloped at all levels of implementation and use. This brief aims to offer recommendations on the introduction, implementation and use of design codes in Ukrainian cities.
