As Populous moved out of the River Market last fall they took the opportunity to showcase the future of their company through design. The new Populous headquarters at 4800 Main in the South Plaza neighborhood has created an environment that continues to foster innovation and collaboration while advancing the firm's brand to be more integrated throughout the physical workspaces of their office. A central element of the project is the Grandstand which occupies the former Board of Trade trading floor. What was once a space drawing people together to exchange commodities now serves as a space drawing people together to exchange innovative ideas and designs. An open office layout with floor to ceiling glazing serves as a stark contrast to the original design of the building,
but the change brings a unique connectivity between the city's largest architecture firm and one of the city's most evolving neighborhoods.
