Crissy Field Center Prepares Temporary Prefab Digs

It's not easy getting things built in San Francisco, according to the San Francsico's Chronicle's John King.

Surely that's even more true in San Francisco's sensitive Presidio — but attach the word "temporary" to a project, and even a contemporary fella like the above Project FROG design should sail right in.

It probably helped that the only reason the center has to move to begin with is the $1 billion Doyle Drive rebuild. On a tight timeline, renovating another old Presidio building would have been an iffy proposition for the center.

Instead, the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy opted for prefab mod for the temporary homebase, which will launch in February.

Once Doyle Drive finishes its surgery, the Crissy Field Center will move back into its old house. Downside: everyone hates moving.
