White House Press Briefing Room
The White House Press Room is updated to accommodate 21st century technology.
The White House Press Area, a space that has buzzed with near-constant activity since the Nixon administration, was showing signs of wear. Originally configured to house media outlets operating in the early 1980s, the resources of the space were stretched to accommodate the presence of new media outlets and advances in technology. The General Services Administration (GSA) commissioned CallisonRTKL to undertake a dynamic redesign that would create a state-of the-art briefing room.
