What if the White House, the ultimate architectural symbol of political power, were to be designed today? On occasion of the election of the 44th President of the United States of America, Storefront for Art and Architecture, in association with Control Group, challenge you to design a new residence for the world’s most powerful individual. The best ideas, designs, descriptions, images, and videos will be selected…
and there will be prizes, etc. This is almost a parody of architecture’s bourgeoisie focus, and provides a royal opportunity for snark. I’m thinking something extremely phallic with gun turrents and a corn syrup moat set amidst the unmarked graves of starving Iraqi children (yes they’re both dead and starving). Over the top? Well, Swirling Passages of Death was one of my first architecture projects, so it’s par for the course.
Anyway, I hope some lefty architecture students submit some subversive works.
