A concrete, cloverleaf-shaped icon, Prentice Women’s Hospital has added drama and interest to the Chicago skyline for nearly four decades. Progressive and cutting edge, the highly engineered and sculpted building was designed by famed Chicago architect Bertrand Goldberg. Commisioned by Northwestern University in 1968, the building opened to much fanfare in 1974. It was the first building designed with the aid of a computer.
The Prentice is now in danger of being demolished since it is no longer in use. Sign the petition to save this mid-century masterpiece: http://tinyurl.com/77c2poh
