Scope and Content

Series 3, Advanced Trading Floor Operations Center, 1998-2004, combined two projects in the built environment, the Command Center and the Executive Ramp, both conceived as a technological expansion on the existing NYSE Trading Floor. This series includes textual and born-digital components, as well as a number of drawing sets.

The real-time virtual reality environment returned to the physical environment with the design and construction of the Command Center and Executive Ramp. The Command Center project involved the construction of a raised platform from the Main Room to the Blue Room; features included an information desk, a systems desk, and a video wall, the last of which displayed various stock data. It was later renovated during the Executive Ramp project, which primarily involved the installation of a multi-screen display of the 3DTF into the Command Center. Together, the two projects make up the Advanced Trading Floor Operations Center, often referred to as “the ramp.”

The textual records for this series include correspondence and a small number of photographs. Digital files for the Advanced Trading Floor primarily include handouts for presentation meetings; there is also a small body of photographs of NYSE and press material. Additionally, there are also approximately 65 plans, which document the design and construction of the Command Center. These include preliminary drawings, construction sets, and addendums. Notably, the oversized materials also contain a photograph of former U.S. President Bill Clinton standing on the ramp.
