In January 2008, White House Redux presented an international call for ideas. The mission statement was “What if the White House, the ultimate architectural symbol of political power, were to be designed today?” On occasion of the election of the 44th President of the United States of America, Storefront for Art and Architecture, in association with Control Group, challenge designers and architects to design a new residence for the world’s most powerful individual. The best ideas, designs, descriptions, images, and videos will be selected by some of the world’s most distinguished designers and critics and featured in a month-long exhibition at Storefront for Art and Architecture in October 2008.

The following projects are the winners by Jury selection:

First Prize:
J.P. Maruszczak, Ryan Manning (assistant), Roger Connah

“The 12 scripts that make up the Revenge of the Lawn are like snapshots in an Architecture Album - vivid, delightfully informal, they cast a new dream light on the un-captured moments of experience, between the political and the personal. In these fantasies and love stories, the relationships and lost histories from Kabul, Little Rock, Tacoma and Peshawar demonstrate an architecture of wit, humanity and originality not previously achieved since writers imagined an architecture of iDeath.”

I don't understand why the audience can't see the all entries for popular vote.
Are they hiding something?

If these are the best entries I would hate to see the losers. This is garbage.
