DESCRIPTION
The majority of trading now takes place on-line, and yet the stock exchange building is an increasing phenomena. It seems that the building functions more as a symbol of solidity and prosperity, more than it is required for the activity of trade.

“The essence of the stock market is speculation: it is based on capital, not gravity. The case of Shenzhen’s almost virtual stock market, the role of exceeds that of program - it is a a building that has to represent the stock market, more than physically accommodate it…. It is not a trading arena with offices, but an office with virtual organsthat suggest and ilustrate the process of the market”

Rem Koolhaas on the proposed OMA stock exchange in Shenzhen.

RESEARCH AGENDA
Through analysing these buildings, common traits can emerge. There is very little writing about the typology of stock exchange, if there is indeed a typology.
