Gluckman out at the Presidio

New York architect Gluckman Mayner has reportedly being replaced as architect for the Contemporary Art Museum at the Presidio (CAMP), a $150 million project to be built on a 1,500-acre National Park at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The news was reported by the Architect’s Newspaper on Friday.

Gluckman’s design, published in WAN in December 2007 as a two-storey glass box, was ultimately deemed too massive and modernist by the Presidio Trust, the park’s governing board, to sit comfortably next to the Victorian and early 20th Century buildings that populate the Park’s Main Post area.

In response to the project’s criticism, museum patrons and founders of the GAP, Doris and Donald Fisher, have asked the Associate Architect for the project, San Francisco based WRNS Studio, to assume the role of lead architect. WRNS collaborated with Daniel Libeskind on the Contemporary Jewish Museum, also in San Francisco.
