The city already has given Northwestern University the go-ahead to raze the old Prentice Women’s Hospital building in Streeterville for a new medical facility.
But on Thursday, the Chicago Architecture Foundation will display 71 alternative designs for preserving and adapting the building. One of the designs was posted on BackTalk on Oct. 31.
A jury of architects, engineers and designers selected three competition winners, as well as an honorary mention.
“Reconsidering an Icon” will be open from Nov. 16 until Feb. 8 in the foundation’s lecture hall at 224 S. Michigan Ave. Admission is free. CAF is open seven days a week from 9:30am to 5pm.
