Prentice Women’s Hospital
333 E. Superior St., Chicago (Cook County)

 

 
   
 

 

This Bertrand Goldberg-designed hospital has been largely vacant since Northwestern Memorial Hospital relocated to a new structure in 2007. Ownership is expected to revert back to Northwestern University this year, when the last tenant moves out of the building. This concrete clover-leafed structure, which was built in 1975, would then likely be demolished for a new medical research facility. Although Goldberg’s organic architectural designs – such as this one – were widely influential, none of his Chicago works are protected by local landmark designation. This is the second consecutive listing of the hospital on the “Ten Most” list.
