For two centuries, the Presidio was a military post—the famed defender of the Golden Gate. Since 1994, the Presidio has undergone a stunning transformation—physically and in its sense of purpose. Today, this 1,500-acre site at the center of the San Francisco Bay Area is a National Historic Landmark and a new kind of national park—a place of beauty, cultural significance, and contemporary innovation.
A portion of the highway that has cut through the Presidio for seven decades is being replaced with a below-grade roadway hidden from public view. This creates a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to establish a magnificent new landscape from which the public can view and experience the Presidio, the bay, and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
In March 2014, the Presidio Trust, in partnership with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the National Park Service, invited five internationally-renowned teams to develop design and programming visions for the landscape in order to spark a community dialogue about the future.
