Theme of the competition:
to redesign the White House, as if it were to be built today
alex schulz from germany, architect / designer from germany (working mainly in the fields of design with projects shown at triennale milano 05, passagen cologne 06, 100%design london 07, etc.) together with architect ralf schormann from duesseldorf, germany have submitted the entry “rediscovery”, which is amongst the 50 shortlisted projects (shown in ny storefront gallery and published in the internet and in the whitehouseredux book just released).
“rediscovery” is a dual concept for the whitehouse, consisting of a building and a airship as a mobile part (including a mobile oval office). the airship is set to establish a world wide network in pursuit of new green technologies, making it possible to one nation to learn from another. the building serves also as a greenhouse for endangered endemic species.
Public vote for all shortlisted projects.

Storefront for Art and Architecture New York
The organization was founded in 1982 by Kyong Park with R.L. Seltman and Arleen Schloss in a tiny storefront at 51 Prince Street, “to support the idea that art and design have the potential and responsibility to affect public policies which influence the quality of life and future of all cities.” With co-director Glenn Weiss (1984–86), Storefront implemented its “civic dialogue and activist” project format and moved Storefront to its location at Kenmare Street.
Exhibitions have ranged from single artist site-specific installations to thematic group shows that have addressed issues from new technology to the social and political forces that shape the built environment. Storefront has also held a series of competitions with the aim to address relevant issues within contemporary culture. In 1985 within the exhibition “Homeless at Home” a call for designs asked for the projection of alternative housing models for homeless in New York.
