The Vision for the Obama Presidential Center

From day one, President Obama and Mrs. Obama have made clear they do not just want to build a building or museum, they want to create a place that inspires people and communities to come together to take on their biggest challenges.

The Center is designed as a campus in Jackson Park that will help unlock the full potential of the Park and will re-establish the South Side’s connection to the Lagoon and Lake Michigan. The park is a democratic space where all are welcome, and a campus allows all people to more easily pass around the architecture and enter the park.
