Models for Obama Presidential Center Released

Models for Obama Presidential Center Released

The Obama Foundation rejected a proposed Washington Park site that would have made the center easily accessible through public transportation, opting instead for a lush Jackson Park location that overlooks Lake Michigan. The center will include a 235-foot-tall museum, a forum building for community programming, a library, community athletic center and an outdoor plaza. Clearly the choice of Washington Park, specifically the plans developed by John Ronan Architects, opens the center up to a myriad of possibilities, a lot of them eliminating the problems of the Jackson Park site. Because, according to the professors, the Obama Presidential Center wastes millions of taxpayer dollars in an already broke state, destroys a public park and is "socially regressive" to the affluent community.

"Michelle and I want the center to be more than just a building", Obama says.

The project will also annex more than 20 acres from Jackson Park, an urban park on the National Register of Historic Places designed by Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architects who designed Central Park. On the current plans the intrusion into the park is huge: twenty-one acres, the size of two large city blocks. But the patchwork "remedies" presented by the Obama Foundation do not address the fundamental problem of Jackson Park being the wrong choice for the center.

"When I was younger, there was a time I dreamed of being an architect", said Barack Obama in revealing the new crowdsourced plans.

"None of the funds will go back to the City to improve train lines and public transportation infrastructure", the faculty members add.

The Obama Center wasted taxpayer money.

.

The letter closes with a blistering criticism of the project's estimated cost, which the professors argue will easily exceed $100 million and fall exclusively on the shoulders of the taxpayer.

We're sure the new 3D renderings for the park - released Wednesday - will only throw fuel on that fire.
