Robert A.M. Stern Architects Selected to Design the George W. Bush Presidential Library and MuseumAugust 28, 2007
The George W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation announced today that Robert A.M. Stern Architects, LLP, has been selected to design the Presidential Library and Museum for America’s 43rd President, following a decision by President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush.
"I am honored to be asked to take on the challenge of shaping this important living institution – a museum, a library, and an institute – at the edge of a major historic university campus," said Robert A.M. Stern.
"As we remain in exclusive discussions with Southern Methodist University and hope to announce a final decision on the location of the library later this year, we believe it is important to take this step of naming the architect to allow for the design process to begin moving forward," said Donald L. Evans, who is leading the library effort. "Robert A.M. Stern brings deep resources and broad experience to this important project."
