Dig Studio in close collaboration with Ritoch Powell and Lake|Flato Architects developed guiding principles with the City for the renovation that were based on previous plan outreach. These principles included the creation of an entertainment destination, providing a connected center, honoring Scottsdale Civic Center’s history, celebrating cultural influences and significant cultural impact of the surrounding institutions, providing daily layers and flexibility in programming and setting a new standard for high-performance design.
The project consists of nine acres of iconic open public space constructed over 50 years ago in the heart of downtown Scottsdale, Arizona. With a bond-funded $27.5 million budget, the Civic Center Plaza Renovation Project will upgrade the utility infrastructure, grading and drainage, and the landscape as well as provide a new decorative hardscape. Improvements will include new structural elements, such as two multi-functional stages, restroom facilities, a children’s play area with a mist-fog system, and a play area with a shade canopy.
