TradeLink L.L.C.

Chicago, Illinois
January 1st 2007

Since its organization in 1979, TradeLink has traded securities, futures, options, and commodities. Gensler partnered with TradeLink to design a headquarters that evokes a cargo vessel, embodying the trading aspect of the company's business. Like the interior of a cargo vessel, the project's spatial configuration is modular and changes frequently; there is no drywall in the whole project. The container-like spaces can be reconfigured to create entryways, common areas, and corridors, giving TradeLink the flexibility to meet changing business needs.
