Anaheim, California

Collaborators Populous

OCVIBE is a planned entertainment district centered on the existing Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Burton Studio evolved the project’s master plan into a specific design for the urban park, paseo, public and private streets, and parking buildings. The development will include retail and dining additions to the Honda Center, a new concert hall, and a market hall building, all of which open onto the central urban park. The space, imagined as a sequence of natural environments, evokes various southern California landscapes. ‘Montane Uplands’ at the highest point of the market hall cascade to ‘Oak Foothills,’ with additional references to desert and agricultural settings. The result is a landmark civic space for Anaheim that can accommodate daily use on an intimate scale as well as major events for thousands of attendees.
