future prentice competition

BRIEF:  A re-imagining of Bertrand Goldberg’s Prentice Women’s Hospital. “Innovation involves drawing from the past while looking to the future. Goldberg’s tower is reinvigorated as The Next Library. No longer simply a repository for knowledge, it is the physical manifestation of the digital power required to process as well as preserve new research.
Inside the concrete cloverleaf, four [double loaded] rings of servers rise seventy feet, supported from the shell by a system of steel bracing that replaces the floors and creates a single volume that extends from the topmost server to the glass-enclosed base.” –text by Laura Bowe, edited by Tom Veed, Bryn Namavari
