Unveiled: The Barack Obama Presidential Library and Crossfit Center

Obamamandias:



The Center for Chilling With Interesting Italians will feature a sledding hill, a women's garden (is this not sexist, sweetie?) and a Sports Center, where I guess you can peruse all the brackets Obama filled out for his eight years in office.

This is gay:

The main building was designed based on an image of hands coming together in a sign of unity.

From the Obama Center website:

The Forum is two-story public meeting space, with one story above grade and one below ground, where people of all backgrounds can come together for programming.

Yes, Obama and his henchmen in the media were pretty invested in Programming masses of people.

The building is designed to look like four hands coming together and being stronger together. You know, like a bunch of sticks coming together being stronger together. You know, like Mussolini's faggot symbol. (A literal faggot symbol.)

The Museum building is a tower -- representing ascension, hope, and what ordinary people have the power to do together. Its design was inspired by a photo of four hands coming together.

So far we have a place for "programming" and an aesthetic that symbolizes individuals coming together into a formless mass where they can feel Powerful and Alive for once in their pathetic lives.

Let's see what other fascist design imperatives are baked into this ugly cake:

The Obama Presidential Center concept model, as seen from above and the northwest. As visitors ascend through the museum, they will be treated to expansive views to the north through an enormous "window," which will also allow passersby on foot, bike, car, bus or train to look into the OPC and sense the vitality and lift of this important institution.

Ah, wonderful. The masses on the ground will be able to gaze up at the height and power of this monument to a Cult of Personality.

The Museum Building is meant to represent hope, ascension and what ordinary people have the power to do together.

Again, the design emphasizes that "ordinary" people cannot achieve feats as individuals, but only as part of a collective dominated by a Man in the High Tower.

You know what this project needs? Some kind of Brandenburg Gate type structure.

The Museum, Forum, and Library Buildings will wrap around a community-facing public plaza that will act as another gateway into the park.

Ah there you go.

It would also be swell if we could have a place for the Obama Youth to form into athletic collective units.

The Athletic Center will invite the community to take part in physical activity year round, highlighting the importance of teamwork and exercise through sports.

Perfect!

Isn't that understood with all public buildings? People of all backgrounds can go there.

257 The Library Building is the third main building of the campus --- a portal
for visitors to engage with the world beyond the Obama Presidential
Center. More than a building housing documents from the past, we want
this to be a place for visitors to play a real role in building our
collective future. With that in mind, to tap into the existing learning
network within the city, the Foundation is currently exploring the
possibility of a partnership with the Chicago Public Library
.



Yeah, because it is a library building with no books/papers.

http://www.zombietime.com/zomblog/?p=1456

Obamandias

I met a traveller from a once free land
Who said: A vast and fathomless ego hath
Scorched the earth. Nearby, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose contempt
And tilted chin, and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read.
Few survived that parliamentary Armageddon
The rest were run out of town on a rail, or fled.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Obamandias, king of kings:
Look on my legislation, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the ruins
Of that colossal Self, burnt and bare
The lone and lifeless prairie stretches far away.

705 This is located on the other side of Lake Shore Drive from the U of C. So any student or neighborhood person who wants to use this will have to cross a huge six lane highway or something. And it's also like 10 long blocks from the main campus so it's not close. And it's near the lake so 6 months of the year there will be howling winds coming off the lake and blasting you with a wet cold as you approach the structure. So nobody in their right mind would visit during October through March unless they had a really good reason. In other words, it might as well be on an island in the middle of the lake, that's how far removed it is from the university and Hyde Park. Obama must know this because he lived there, and yet he chose the location anyway. Probably the best location would have been in the vicinity of the law school, across the large grassy "Midway" from the main quad.

Posted by: bjstuggzzz at January 10, 2018 04:05 PM (e44Qj)

https://preview.tinyurl.com/yaus6my6

" the current plan calls for taking a large section of a[] historic public park and giving it to a private entity for development. Jackson Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the most important urban parks in the nation. Construction of a permanent architectural monument violates Olmsted's vision of a democratic urban park. On the current plans the intrusion into the park is huge: twenty-one acres, the size of two large city blocks. At a time of increasing complexity and pressure in urban life, Chicago should be dedicated to preserving our public parks as open areas for relaxation and play for all its citizens. We also note that the Obama Center has abandoned its original plans to be a Presidential Library. It will be a private entity with no official connection to the National Archives. ..."

(with apologies to Percy Bysshe Shelley)

I met a traveler from an east-coast land,
Who said: Two vast and ankless calves of stone
Stand in the beach dunes. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a haggard visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled neck, and stare of middle age,
Tell that its sculptor well those dodderings read.
Which yet survive, stamped on these brainless scams,
The files that mocked them and the bytes to shred.

And on the bathroom drives these words appear:
"I am Rodhamandias, Queen of Dems:
Look for my mails, ye journos, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. At the dismay,
From that colossal hack, bitbleached and bare,
The devilish Assange smirks far away.
