Note With almost 500 submissions from 42 countries around the world, White House Redux?a competition launched by Storefront for Art and Architecture and Control Group last January?became one of the most talked-about architecture competitions in 2008. Published to coincide with the opening of an exhibition of the competition's results at Storefront for Art and Architecture this book contains a compendium of documentation related to the competition and an overview of the results. It includes essays by Joseph Grima (Director of Storefront) and Geoff Manaugh (BLDGBLOG), a history of the existing White House and 123 selected projects as well as the four winning submissions. A jury assessed the submissions in the 45th floor of the World Trade Center Tower 7, a process documented in the book's 30-page photoessay by Marty Hyers
