One of my favorite things to do in DC is to take a walk by the White House. It reminds me what a privilege it is to live in the capital city. It also reminds me of the incredible power we have in this country, to do real good if we choose to. And now we have the opportunity to re-design this symbol of power - and make the white house green. It's called White House Redux.
"On occasion of the election of the 44th President of the United States of America, Storefront for Art and Architecture, in association with Control Group, challenge you to design a new residence for the world's most powerful individual. The best ideas, designs, descriptions, images, and videos will be selected by some of the world's most distinguished designers and critics and featured in a month-long exhibition at Storefront for Art and Architecture in July 2008."
Submissions are due April 20, 2008, so get your design team together now! And just because this is an architectural magazine, I hope lots of other disciplines participate in this competition... we need some diverse thinking on Pennsylvania Avenue!
