Bertrand Goldberg's masterworks at risk

    Blair Kamin points out threats to two Goldberg structures.
    An "architecturally-disruptive incursion from Dick's Last Resort" at Goldberg's Marina City; and the possible demolition of two little-known Goldberg buildings at the Elgin, Illinois Mental Health Center.

    Also at great peril, last time I checked, is


    Goldberg's marvelous Prentice Women's Hopsital on Chicago's Gold Coast. It ought to be saved. Northwestern Memorial Hospital owns it. What's the latest on the status of this Chicago treasure that enlivens a rather boxy near-north side neighborhood?

    Dwell Magazine wrote on the great work of Bertrand Goldberg recently.


    And if these demolitions occur, it would not be the first time that we tear down an architect's important work, even as we honor him or her. The Art Institute of Chicago plans a major Bertrand Goldberg retrospective in the fall of 2010 in its new architecture galleries to open in the Renzo Piano-designed new wing.
