On Wednesday, Barack and Michelle Obama offered a first look at the plans and design for the Obama Presidential Center. Located at Jackson Park, Chicago, it will be a campus of three buildings and would be a “transformational project for this community.” One of the features of the campus is that in addition to a museum, library, auditorium and public garden, there will be a recording studio.
