Presidio's Disney Museum Treads Meekly Where CAMP Died

New, 11 comments

The proposed Presidio contemporary art museum has long bitten the proverbial dust, but the other Presidio museum's headed for its grand opening in but seven days. The Walt Disney Family Museum, dedicated to the life of the man who started it all, was designed by architects Page & Turnbull and is housed in three readapted buildings along the western edge of the Main Post. Given the hellfire and damnation over the design of CAMP— enough to get it redesigned completely at least once— the architecture of the Disney museum may be worth noting: a glass structure glued to existing brick walls, seen here with architect Jay Turnbull. An off-the-shelf, socially approved solution to reusing old buildings! The lesson? When in doubt, go uncontroversial.
