If you haven't ever seen Prentice Women's Hospital, the Modernist concrete structure that opened in Chicago in 1975, you can head to the Windy City -- or visit SavingPlaces.org, the new National Trust website about America's National Treasures.
There you'll discover that Prentice is much-loved and much-admired, but threatened with demolition by Northwestern University -- which is why the Trust is battling to save it alongside an impressive list of world-famous architects and Chicago-area preservation groups.
This week Paul Goldberger, the Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic (and National Trust board member since 2005) penned a blog post for Vanity Fair magazine where he serves as a contributing editor. His post brilliantly captures Prentice's significance, and underscores the case for saving the innovative cloverleaf hospital.
