Chicago Board of Trade

Since its completion in the 1930's, the Chicago Board of Trade Building suffered many self-inflicted wounds that dulled the beauty of its Art Deco interiors. Working with Austin AECOM and architectural restoration experts Harboe Architects, Schuler Shook helped return the building to its Art Deco grandeur by restoring its decorative fixtures, including its signature luminous ceiling, and creating replicas of historic fixtures that were discarded during previous renovations.
