President Barack Obama’s Department of the Interior released the first ever design template for the nation’s interior, revealing what the public would like to see in the nation before the 2020 Census.
The template is available for free download at the White House website and on Scribd.
According to the document, the public can expect to see “new styles and colors that have been inspired by our diverse cultures and diverse regions” before the Census.
“This will not only be a valuable tool to help inform voters about their choices in the 2020 Presidential Election, but it will also be an important tool to the American people as they enter the process for choosing their next President,” the document reads.
The document also provides a list of proposed interior design styles, including an eclectic selection of styles inspired by contemporary American life.
Among the styles, a number of styles are being proposed for the White Houses main residences and the Oval Office, as well as the Smithsonian and the National Museum of American History.
The list of proposals includes several styles that are currently in use in the United States.
The first of these, the New American Style, which was adopted by President Barack Hussein Obama in 2008, focuses on “a renewed sense of American history” with its focus on diversity and individuality.
The White House said that the New America Style is “the latest example of the president’s commitment to restoring America to her true beauty and character through design and technology.”
A second design style, Modern American, focuses more on the American past.
The New American style has been adopted by other presidents, including Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
Modern American includes a focus on “the American way of life,” according to the White President’s Council on Design and Technology.
Modern Americans includes “traditional American designs that incorporate elements of modernist design with elements of traditional American design.”
The New America style is also proposed for some of the new buildings under consideration for the Trump administration, including the National Mall and the White Capitol.
“These buildings are all in an evolving phase of development,” said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki in an interview with ABC News.
“We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves with a new building.”
However, the first two buildings under construction, the National Wall of Art, and the Old Capitol Building, will be built with the New-American style in mind.
In addition to the styles proposed for public use, the White Senate Office Building, the Capitol Rotunda, the Old Executive Office Building and the Lincoln Memorial will all be using the new style.
The new style has also been proposed for certain historic buildings.
For example, the Smithsonian Institution and the New Orleans Museum of Art have been using the New York City style, and The New Orleans Metropolitan Museum of Fine Arts has also adopted the New England style.
“With these new styles, we’re building on the traditions of the United Kingdom and France, and we’re not just creating a new look, we are re-imagining our past,” said Psaki.
“The new style is a step toward the modernity of the country.”
