Day 22 - Codes and Ordinances

Everything you see in the built environment is the result of a decision making process that involves many people and many groups of people.  The rules that govern the use, shape and general character of a building are often set in place long before a new building is conceived of, and shaping these rules is a matter of local governance.  Codes and Ordinances are all around you, whether you see them or not.  You can be sure that nothing in Architecture, good, bad or ugly, is arbitrary.
