Arrow Obama’s presidential library may need $1.5 billion - 02-19-2017, 05:20 PM

Barack Obama’s presidential library may need $1.5 billion

The Barack Obama Presidential Center in Chicago could require a $1.5 billion endowment, its architects say, three times what was raised for the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.

Husband-and-wife architectural team Tod Williams and Billie Tsien noted that it will be difficult to raise such a huge sum because Obama scrupulously declined to do much fund-raising while he was still in office.

The Obama Center is due to be so expensive because it will require the construction of both a presidential library and a museum about the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama. And federal requirements now stipulate that former presidents must have larger endowments to pay for annual operating costs at the libraries.

“It won’t be easy,” Williams said. “It’s not just about preserving the past. It’s about the future.”

The actual buildings were slated to cost $200 million. “But I told them it will cost $300 million,” Williams said.

Williams and Tsien spoke about the project with architectural critic Paul Goldberger on Wednesday, at the annual benefit for East Hampton’s LongHouse Reserve.

The event was held in the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, which the duo designed — they’ve also designed the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, the Phoenix Art Museum and the Logan Center for the Arts in Chicago.

Listening in rapt attention were LongHouse founder Jack Larsen, its president, Dianne Benson, and stem-cell guru Dr. Christopher Calapai.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.


COVFEFE!!

Why does he need a library?

He can be the first African American President without one.

What a waste of money.

Sounds about right. You certainly can't have his library costing less than his healthcare website now can you?

It sure won't be needed for his college transcripts. Maybe it's going to be a tribute to Acorn?

Isn't it obvious that my thread covered the pertinent accomplishments. The fans think
so. Approaching 3,000,000 views. And it saves $1.5B.

Light applause is sufficient.

$1.5B in a shit hole ? What could that money do for the inner city in Chicago ?? eh, never mind, they are black, and therefore do not matter to the liberals in charge. If they did, they would not sit by while 4K of their citizens are shot each year.

If 1 person was shot in my hood, it would NOT be tolerated and somebody better have answers. And the only answer that would suffice was it was some guy from Chicago, that was passing through. Damn, we need a wall too
