Former president Barack Obama was back in Chicago on Wednesday. Obama unveiled the design of his future presidential library and museum on the south side.

The complex will feature three buildings — a museum, forum and library.

The museum, the tallest of the three buildings, will hold exhibition space, public spaces, offices and education and meeting rooms, according to the Obama Foundation. The forum and library buildings are intended to be used for study and foundation programming. Obama said the foundation, which is overseeing the project, is also looking into the possibility of locating a Chicago Public Library branch on the site.

Obama also said he hopes the presidential center will become a hub for artists like Bruce Springsteen, Chance the Rapper and Spike Lee to use to teach young people about music and film.
