Robert A.M. Stern, George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas

 
At the edge of the Southern Methodist University campus in Dallas, the George W. Bush Presidential Center – a work of the New York firm of Robert A.M. Stern – now houses the museum, library and namesake institute devoted to the 43rd president of the United States. Inserted in the Texan landscape designed by the American architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, the presidential center – built with brick and limestone – has earned LEED Platinum certification, the highest rating in sustainable and energy-responsible building granted by the U.S. Green Building Council. Freedom Hall, the heart of the museum featuring a full-size replica of the Oval Office, is crowned by a 20-meter-high lantern. The tower gleams at night like a lighthouse.
