From our friends at Curbed, regarding the Fisher’s proposal to develop the Presidio bowling alley site into the Contemporary Art Museum of the Presidio:
“In the spirit of good fun (as always) Curbed SF has asked the inevitable question: How does the just-released design for Don Fisher’s CAMP [Contemporary Art Museum of the Presidio] measure up to SF’s other architectural offerings? We’ve launched a poll on the subject, and hope that you’ll consider sharing it with your readers.
Don’t know what the heck they’re talking about? In a nutshell: “Gap founder Donald Fisher has unveiled the design of the museum he wants to build in San Francisco’s Presidio…” It will be a museum to house their (he and wifey’s) growing art collection. The proposed site is where the Presidio bowling alley is currently. There are groups lobbying for and against this project (no surprise), and one other bid was submitted for a “History Center of the Golden Gate.”
All politics and “sacred ground” aside, Curbed just wants to know what you think of the design in comparison to a few others, and we’re anxious to see the outcome.
