Back in 1792, one person was the judge of only six proposals to determine the image of what is arguably now the United State’s most prominent house and a symbol of democracy. This competition is calling on designers to propose a new house for the President of the United States. How would the image of this iconic piece of architecture change if it were to be redesigned now? What would a new design for the White House look like today?

Designers can propose any size of building(s) placed anywhere within the boundary of the current White House grounds. Designers can use the program list from the existing house or reinterpret it for their new designs.

Designers should design as if nothing currently exists on the grounds. Other than the president’s home, there are no requirements for designing buildings and landscapes within the grounds. However, designers are free to propose additional elements if they choose to do so.

Upon registration, participants will receive a 3D site model indicating the boundary they can design within.
