The New York office of Perkins Eastman has just announced that it has been commissioned by NYSE Euronext to design the “next generation trading floor” through extensive renovations to the floor’s Main Room, replacing traditional broker booths with modern trading desks, new screens and workspaces, and a new network while creating a unified trading environment.

The refurbishment plan will continue over the next 18 months, demolishing many of the old booths and replacing them with large open trading areas that will be able to accommodate as many as 40 traders each. The finished space will likely resemble NYSE Euronext's new NYSE Amex options trading floor—also designed by Perkins Eastman.
