This architectural scale model of The White House was constructed for a permanent exhibit in the newly-renovated Gerald Ford Presidential Museum. Architectural plans and elevations of The White House in its current state are not publicly available for security reasons, so this model was constructed to a very high level of detail and accuracy without such documentation. We developed our own set of plans of The White House as it was in the 1970s with whatever data we could find, including satellite imagery, photographs, and historic construction plans.
