Jeanne Gang's vision for Prentice Women's Hopsital building, Chicago

In the midst of a battle that has pitted Northwestern University’s expansion against preservation of the historic (albeit quirky) Prentice Women’s Hospital in Chicago, Jeanne Gang (MArch ’93) has come up with an elegant solution. Her design for a tower atop the existing structure adds the research space the university needs, pays homage to a unique landmark and forges a “third way” beyond a seemingly insoluble conundrum. Read “A Vision to Avoid Demolition for a ’70s Pioneer” by critic Michael Kimmelman in the NY Times.
