DALLAS (AP).- The George W. Bush Presidential Center will be a modern brick and limestone building set amid a Texas-inspired landscape including wildflowers and prairies.

Former first lady Laura Bush unveiled the design Wednesday in Dallas. She said both she and the former president wanted the building to be approachable.

The three-story center will be about 227,000 square-foot and will house an archive, a museum and a policy institute. It will be at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

The groundbreaking is expected a year from now and the center is expected to be completed by spring 2013.
