Design the GWB library

George W. Bush Library

The Chronicle Review had a “Back-of-the-Envelope Design Contest” to get some ideas for the “George W. Bush Library”,

“We thought that Chronicle readers would have their own ideas about how that building should be designed, and we invited people to send in designs on the backs of envelopes. About 120 people sent in sketches that were good, bad, serious, humorous, abstract, or really angry. Their designs took the form of toilets, bunkers, crosses, and W’s, some crudely drawn and some very elegant. A sampling of those designs is displayed on these pages.”
