The temporary Crissy Field Center, an enviro-friendly prefab deal, launches tomorrow after a construction period lasting all of around four months (we hear the cafe's already open). The center's making its temporary move because of the Doyle Drive Replacement Project — which actually gives the Presidio a chance to experiment a bit with this "modern" architecture everyone keeps going on about. The above photos were taken about a month ago, and do show a lively looking center — we'd say sprightly if not for the fact that the place is only two months old. The redwood siding was reportedly harvested from an old Marin railroad tunnel, and the building contains about 35 percent recycled material overall.
