Crissy Field

San Francisco, California

The conversion of the U.S. Sixth Army’s military installation at the Presidio into a national park encompasses the restoration and rehabilitation of the natural landscape of wetlands and dune fields along the San Francisco Bay waterfront. Hargreaves Associates has reintroduced and amplified the convoluted landforms generated by bracing wind and wave attacks on an otherwise relentlessly flat site. Crissy Field integrates a diversity of recreational uses with a vigorous and dynamic environment, all within the context of an enduring historical landmark.
