I’m all in with the flight of fancy that Jeanne Gang has proposed to save Bertrand Goldberg’s Prentice Women’s Hospital.

Build over it, she’s told the New York Times, furnishing the Times with art that makes her idea look not merely intriguing but ravishing. Her three renderings have been posted on the Times website. Here are two of them.

The other day I commented on the Bleader that the problem with Goldberg’s building is its ungainly proportions—too much massive pedestal and too little curving concrete. Gang’s idea takes care of that—by stripping away a floor of pedestal immediately beneath the concrete that should never have been added in the first place, and flinging 31 scalloped and gleaming stories up into heaven above it.
