Taking advantage of the salubrious climate and a premier location on a bluff overlooking the ocean, Fashion Island is an outdoor shopping mall. The design is a series of plazas using fountains, water features, green spaces and outdoor eating areas as focal points. The plazas are connected by walkways and paseos with shopfronts. Designed by Sasaki, Walker Associates and completed in 1970, the project won an American Society of Landscape Architects' National Merit Award in 1971. Twenty years later, the Center was renovated as Fashion Island Renaissance.
