New video screens coming to President’s House

    If things go according to plan, the new video screens being installed at the President’s House will be a more sustainable solution to a problem that presented itself shortly after the house went up.

    New video screens are finally on the way to the Old City tourist attraction built in the footprint of the original president’s house.

    The Inquirer reports the new screens, which can better handle exposure to daily weather, could be in place in days to better tell the story of the property at Sixth and Market streets. But don’t think that means everyone is happy.
    Aside from all the fuss over the cost of the original project and the replacement screens, some say the new screens are ugly because of the way they attach to the walls.

    Coming soon to the President’s House: functioning, unattractive video screens.

    Feed the Feed: Should more resources be put into the design of the new screens, or is their functionality the only thing that matters?
