President Barack Obama has selected Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, a New York-based husband-and-wife architectural duo, to design his presidential library in Chicago. The architects have been the winners of 2013 National Medal of the Arts, for buildings Barnes Foundation art museum in Philadelphia and the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago. “Obama and his wife, Michelle, who spent months poring over proposals for the project and meeting with prospective architects at the White House, chose the team because their vision for the center came closest to theirs,” said Martin Nesbitt, chairman of the Barack Obama Foundation.
