Three Firms Shortlisted to Design Prentice Successor

Shortly after confirming the demise of Bertrand Goldberg’s beloved Prentice Women’s Hospital in Chicago, Northwestern has released a shortlist of three firms competing to design the school’s new biomedical research facility. This comes with the support of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and despite strong backlash from architects and preservationists worldwide.

The finalists are: 

  • Perkins + Will of Chicago
  • Goettsch Partners of Chicago and Ballinger of Philadelphia
  • Adrian Smith+Gordon Gill Architecture LLP of Chicago and Payette of Boston

The trustees will pick the final design, though models will be displayed for public input, according to the University. 

The winning submission will be selected by late fall.
