agile open northern california 2011: location
Fort Mason Center is an historic landmark that is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Originally a military garrison and embarkation port during WWII and the Korean Conflict , it is now a model of military base conversion that houses a theatre, arts organizations, environmental groups, a gourmet vegetarian restaurant, conference facilities, classrooms and more.
Fort Mason Center is situated right on the San Francisco Bay, with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. The rest of San Francisco is just a bus or a taxi ride away.
The conference will be in Landmark Building A, which you can see on this Fort Mason Map.
