The Modern buildings at the Presidio include the Main Post Gym and the Crissy Field warehouses. Designed as simple buildings which promote function over form, these structures often represent new advances in building technology. The now-demolished Letterman Army Medical Center also fell into this category; it was constructed of pre-cast concrete components. Building 924, the Crissy Field warehouse shown above, exhibits innovative engineering design with its open floor plan and glass curtain walls.
Lettermam Army Medical Center, 1969-2002.
Lettermam Army Medical Center was a 550-bed hospital completed in 1969. As a non-historic structure that did not meet modern earthquake codes, it was demolished in 2002 and replaced by the Letterman Digital Arts complex.
