Obama Center for Chicago

FORMER US President Barack Obama overnight revealed new details of the Obama Presidential Center (OPC), a landmark for the South Side of the city of Chicago.

The Obama Presidential Center (above) is aiming to continue the revamp of Chicago’s historic riverside Jackson Park precinct.

At its heart, the campus will feature The Museum Building, intended to “provide hope and inspiration to generations of young leaders and learners”.

The lower levels will house exhibitions telling the stories of the Obamas, along with history on civil rights, African-Americans, Chicago and the USA.

Slated to open in 2021, the US$350m OPC will also include a forum building, library, plaza and an athletic centre.
