  • ORANGE COUNTY GREAT PARKCLIENT: ORANGE COUNTY GREAT PARK CORPORATIONPROJECT SIZE: 1,145 ACRES / 45 ACRES COMPLETED CONSTRUCTION BUDGET: $1.5 BILLION

    THE ORANGE COUNTY GREAT PARK IS AN AMBITIOUS OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP A BEACON OF PUBLIC AMENITY AND LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT FOR THE GROWING SUB-URBAN COUNTY AND TO BRING IDENTITY AND A CORE TO THE REGION. THE GREAT PARK REFLECTS THE DESIGN TEAM AND LOCAL COMMUNITYS VISION FOR WHAT A LARGE URBAN PARK IS MOVING INTO THE 21ST CENTURY. THE PARK ENCAPSULATES GOALS AND OBJECTIVES ESTABLISHED AT THE PROJECT COMMENCEMENT TO RESPECT THE HISTORY, ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY, INCORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY, AND ESTABLISH DESIGN DISTINCTION FOR A STRONG SENSE OF PLACE.

    I JOINED THE DESIGN TEAM EARLY IN THE PROCESS AND IMMEDIATELY BEGAN WORK DEVELOPING THE GREAT PARK MASTER PLAN SETTING A FRAMEWORK FOR THE APPLICATION OF THE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE FUTURE GREAT PARK. AFTER COMPLETING THE STATE AND NATIONALLY AWARDED MASTER PLAN WE FURTHER DETAILED THE VISION IN THE SCHEMATIC DESIGN DRAWINGS. I MANAGED THE DEVELOPMENT OF PARK DISTRICTS; TRABUCO ENTRY, BOSQUE, FIELDS & MEADOWS, AND PROMENADE OF SENSES, AS WELL AS THE CIRCULATION SYSTEMS AND CLIENT AND STAKEHOLDER COORDINATION. I ARGUED FOR AND DEVELOPED THE PRESERVATION DRAWINGS WHICH LOCATED AND ITEMIZED NATURAL AND FABRICATED ELEMENTS OF INTEREST AND MADE SUGGESTIONS FOR FUTURE USE IN THE PARK.

    IN ORDER TO BUILD REGIONAL SUPPORT IT WAS IMPORTANT THAT PUBLIC AMENITIES BEGIN OPENING EARLY. WE ESTABLISHED A YEARLY OPENING OF RECENTLY COMPLETED PARK STARTING WITH THE GREAT PARK BALLOON OPENED IN 2008, THROUGH TO THE PALM COURT AND NORTH LAWN OPENED IN 2011 AND THE COMMUNITY GARDEN OPENING IN 2012. I ASSISTED IN COMPLETION OF CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS FOR THESE COMPLETED PROJECTS.

    Marvelous. An innovative and sustainable approach to ecology, people, and history on an amazing scale. ASLA National Awards Jury

    The initial few elements of the masterful design created by Ken Smith and his Great Park Design Studio are in place. Though the future of the Great Park may not play out exactly as the visionary Mr. Smith originally planned, a walk around the portion of the park now in play reveals that his genius is truly in the details. If done right and managed well, the Great Park will become one of Orange Countys most innovative and inspiring spaces. Coast Magazine

  • PACKING DISTRICTCLIENT: CITY OF ANAHEIM REDEVELOPMENT AGENCYPROJECT SIZE: 4.4 ACRES CONSTRUCTION BUDGET: $12 MILLION

    THE PACKING DISTRICT LOCATED IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN ANAHEIM REACTIVATES THE HISTORIC CITRUS PACKING HOUSE AND PACKARD CAR DEALERSHIP AND ADJACENT LOT INTO A FLEXIBLE PUBLIC SPACE FOR PROGRAMMED AND NON-PROGRAMMED USES. THE ADAPTIVE RE-USE OF THE HISTORIC PACKING HOUSE ILLUMINATES THE HISTORY OF ANAHEIM WHILE PROVIDING CONTEMPORARY USES. THE PACKARD BUILDING RE-USE ANCHORS THE OTHER END OF THE BLOCK AND THE FARMERS PARK TIES THE TWO BUILDINGS TOGETHER WITH AN OPEN PROGRAMMABLE SPACE.

    I WAS INVOLVED FROM THE PROPOSAL PROCESS AND DEVELOPMENT OF PRELIMINARY DESIGN CONCEPTS TO CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS AND CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION. WORKING WITH THE CITY AND FUTURE PROPERTY MANAGER WE DEVELOPED A PROGRAMMING PLAN CENTERED AROUND THE AGRARIAN ROOTS OF ANAHEIM. THE CONCEPT PLAN REFLECTED AN ESTABLISHED GROUND PLANE IN WHICH THE PACKING HOUSE AND PACKARD BUILDINGS WERE SET. THIS GAVE THE ENTIRE PROJECT A COHESIVE ORGANIZATION AND A FRAMEWORK FOR MORE ORGANIC DESIGN ELEMENTS. I DEVELOPED A SITE WIDE GRID FOR ORGANIZING ALIGNMENTS OF PAVING, TREES, AND LIGHTING. I DEVELOPED CONCEPTUAL GRADING PLANS, A CHALLENGE ON AN OTHERWISE FLAT SITE.

    WE THEN OVERLAYED THE GROUND PLANE WITH UNIQUE COMPONENTS FOR SHADE, BOARDWALK, AND SITE FURNISHINGS. WE INTEGRATED RAIL CARS AS DECK SPACE ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE BUILDING ADDING PROPORTIONAL VOLUME TO THE STARK SOUTH SIDE OF THE PACKING HOUSE. WE INTEGRATED AN AT GRADE BOARDWALK ALONG THE PRIMARY CORRIDOR AND FARMERS MARKET. WE INTRODUCED ORCHARDS AND WINDROWS, A RIFF ON AGRARIAN PRACTICES. EACH OF THESE ELEMENTS WERE INTEGRATED BY THOROUGH DETAILS, ELEVATIONS AND MODELING. I COMPLETED CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS AND PERFORMED CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION FOR THE COMPLETED PACKARD BUILDING, PACKING HOUSE AND THE UNDER CONSTRUCTION FARMERS PARK.

  • TRESTLES BEACH ACCESS DESIGN COMPETITION

    CLIENT: ARCHITECTURE FOR HUMANITYPROJECT SIZE: N/A CONSTRUCTION BUDGET: N/A

    THE SAFE TRESTLES DESIGN COMPETITION WAS PROPOSED WITH THE HOPE TO FIND SOLUTIONS TO THE INCREASINGLY POPULAR SURF SPOT CALLED TRESTLES IN SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO. WITH THE INCREASED USE AND A NUMBER OF POPULAR SURF COMPETITIONS THE SITE WAS STRESSED AND THE UNSIGNALED AT GRADE RAIL CROSSING WAS BECOMING TOO DANGEROUS. THE CHALLENGE WAS TO REFLECT THE SURF COMMUNITY, PROTECT THE LOCAL ECOLOGY, AND PROVIDE SAFE ACCESS TO THE BEACH.

    OUR APPROACH DUBBED A LIGHT TOUCH, SOUGHT TO PROVIDE ACCESS WITH MINIMAL GRADING, SECURING EROSION, PROVIDING ADA ACCESS, AND A SAFE CROSSING AT THE RAIL. I ASSISTED IN THE ANALYSIS OF THE EXISTING SITE AND GRADING CONDITIONS WHICH INFORMED THE LAYOUT OF THE ACCESS. WE WORKED TO FIND A GRADING SOLUTION THAT ALLOWED US TO PROVIDE ADA ACCESS, REDUCE ECOLOGICAL IMPACTS, WITH PAVING MATERIALS THAT WOULD REDUCE EROSION. I STUDIED RAIL CROSSING REGULATIONS AND STANDARDS AND INCORPORATED THEM INTO THE AT GRADE AND GRADE SEPARATED ALTERNATIVES. I ASSISTED IN DEVELOPING DESIGN CONCEPTS AND STRATEGIES, AND DEVELOPED GRAPHICS INCLUDING MONTAGES, SECTIONS AND ELEVATIONS. I ASSISTED IN GENERAL SUBMITTAL LAYOUT AND PRESENTATION.

  • OC PEACE OFFICERS MEMORIALDESIGN COMPETITION

    CLIENT: ORANGE COUNTY CHIEFS OF POLICE AND SHERIFFS ASSOCIATIONPROJECT SIZE: N/A CONSTRUCTION BUDGET: N/A

    THE ORANGE COUNTY PEACE OFFICERS MEMORIAL WAS A DESIGN COMPETITION FOR THE RELOCATION OF THE MEMORIAL TO THE NEW FACILITIES RECENTLY BUILT IN TUSTIN, CA. THE CHALLENGE WAS TO DESIGN A SPACE FOR THE RELOCATION OF THE MEMORIAL PLAQUES AND SCULPTURES, WHILE PROVIDING A REFLECTIVE ENVIRONMENT THAT HONORS THOSE OFFICERS THAT GAVE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, AND ALLOW FOR FAMILIES TO CONNECT.

    WE DEVELOPED A PLAN WHICH CONNECTED THE BUILDING TO THE MEMORIAL BY THE THIN BLUE LINE, A NARROW BLUE INTERIOR WHITE EXTERIOR WATER FEATURE HONORING ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS. THE MEMORIAL WALL HOLDING THE MEMORIAL PLAQUES IS SITUATED AT THE MIDPOINT OF THE THIN BLUE LINE. THE MEMORIAL IS A SINGLE MONOLITHIC WALL WITH A LOW HEARTH FOR SEATING AND THE PLACING OF FLOWERS. AT EACH END OF THE THIN BLUE LINE WE INTEGRATED TWO SCULPTURES, A SINGLE WALL WITH THE OUTLINE OF PEACE OFFICERS REPRESENTING THE SHOES THEY FILLED AND THE LOSS WE HAVE EXPERIENCED.

    I ASSISTED IN DEVELOPING DESIGN CONCEPTS AND EVALUATING THEM THROUGH SECTIONS, ELEVATIONS AND DIGITAL MODELING. I DEVELOPED THE TWO SCULPTURES AT THE ENDS OF THE THIN BLUE LINE. I ASSISTED IN DEVELOPING GRAPHICS INCLUDING MONTAGES, SECTIONS AND ELEVATIONS FOR THE PRESENTATION. I ASSISTED IN GENERAL SUBMITTAL LAYOUT AND PRESENTATION.

    INTRODUCTION

    Corbetts work on projects ranging from regional and community parks to urban redevelopment and corporate headquarters have provided him with invaluable experience on demanding projects. These projects, particularly the award winning Orange County Great Park and the Anaheim Packing District show a thoughtful approach, patience and determination. His work on the Master Plan for the Orange County Great Park was instrumental in establishing frameworks, coordinating with stakeholders, and working with the city and client to achieve a plan that has received awards at the state and national level. His experiences have fashioned his dedication to public improvement, sustainable development, and design excellence, as well as commitment to an inclusive team approach, application of a local vernacular, and a detailed execution for the comprehensive success of each project.
