Chicago Stock Exchange Trading Room

Chicago has been the center of American architecture since the late 19th century. The city's most important early architects Louis Sullivan and his partner, Dankmar Adler, designed the Chicago Stock Exchange, built from 1893 to 1894. When the original Stock Exchange was demolished in 1972, sections of Sullivan's elaborate stenciled decorations, molded plaster capitals, and art glass were preserved from the Trading Room. Using these fragments, the Art Institute was able to reconstruct the Trading Room in its Rubloff Building between 1976 and 1977.
