Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library has short listed Chicago based Studio Gang, Copenhagen based Henning Larsen and Oslo based Snøhetta for a design competition that will culminate in a winner later this year. Twelve firms, including four based in Europe, initially submitted their qualifications to the board for consideration. None of the 12 companies were located in North Dakota.

Studio Gang was founded by Jeanne Gang, who was named one of TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people in 2019. One of Gang's principle works, the Aqua tower in Chicago, is the tallest building ever designed by a woman. Her company has also completed a number of smaller scale projects that it calls "community-centered cultural institutions."

Henning Larsen has designed projects all over the world, including Moesgaard Museum in Aarhus, Denmark and the Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik, Iceland. The firm with a "Scandinavian ethos" has recently won the European Prize for Architecture and several other prestigious awards.

Snøhetta has garnered praise and public attention for creative projects, including Europe's first underwater restaurant and several opera houses and libraries. The award-winning firm also integrates landscape architecture, interior design, graphics, branding and product design into its operations.
The library's board of trustees have stated a preference to build the library along the Maah Daah Hey Trail near downtown Medora, a Western-themed tourist town in North Dakota's Badlands.
