The Obama center’s location has not been without controversy. Last year, Charles Birnbaum, CEO of the Cultural Landscape Foundation, wrote an op-ed for Next City that criticized the foundation’s choice of Jackson Park. He wrote that because parts of Chicago are relatively park-poor, the foundation should have chosen a site next to the historic park, rather than taking it over.
