Following on from our last location of the month, the Skywalker Ranch, Mr Lucas has one other gem of a work place to his name. The Letterman Digital Arts Center, or LDAC, is the combined home of Industrial Light & Magic, LucasArts and Lucasfilm’s marketing, online and licensing units.
Once a military hospital in the Presidio of San Francisco adjacent to the Palace of Fine Arts, it has been redesigned to fit the needs of the Lucas’ entertainment mecca. Before even a single screw was turned, George Lucas personally oversaw the entire process of digitally conceptualising and rendering the rooms in the buildings.
The lobby of Building B is open to the public during regular business hours and contains a gallery of Lucasfilm memorabilia including props and costumes from the Star Wars film series.
