June 30, 2017 | BCV Architects has done a number of projects at Newport Center/Fashion Island over the years as it has evolved from an outdoor mall to a downtown center for Newport Beach. Fashion Island will celebrate its 50th anniversary this fall.
Fred L. Emmert and Richard N. Frost have compiled a half century aerial photography retrospective of Fashion Island. Their book includes this shot, taken right before its opening. Upcoming posts will discuss the evolution of this iconic location and BCV’s role in it.
