Curbed Rumblings: A Week of Unveiled Renderings

It's Friday afternoon, and that means it's time to reminisce on the week that was at our sister site and friendly neighborhood blog, Curbed SF.

1) The Presidio: A museum grows in the Presidio and the starchitect design proposal (pictured above) was released earlier this week. Gap founder Don Fisher has made the Contemporary Art Museum of the Presidio—perhaps better known as CAMP—his little pet project, but not even local love for Gap sweater-vests was enough to prevent the CAMP design's last-place finish in a reader survey. In other words, people don't like the design.

2) Japantown: Also revealed this week were three preliminary plans for Japantown's imminent renovation (vote for your favorite here). The 40-year-old center will receive an entire facelift that will introduce a "new generation of economic development" and "diverse housing" to the area. This news comes on top of the Fillmore Heritage madness and the influx of new restaurants in the area. And boom goes the Western Addition.
