As the name would indicate, a presidential library is a very special, almost sacred space. Its duty is to compile the many documents and artifacts of a president and his administration, and present them to the public for greater clarity and discussion. So when it was announced earlier today that former president Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama unveiled their design plans for the 44th president’s library, many were excited, as it means the public is one major step closer to stepping foot in the 200,000-square-foot campus on Chicago’s South Side.
