Chicago Loop Location

Exterior of the Clark Adams Building

In 2009, the CDR opened the Loop location of the PIMCO Decision Research Labs at Clark & Adams in downtown Chicago. More than 1,000 experiments were completed at this location before it closed in early 2020. In July 2021, the CDR launched a brand new public space for behavioral science in the Loop, Mindworks: The Science of Thinking.

Visit Mindworks: The Science of Thinking

Mindworks is the world’s first discovery center and working lab dedicated to behavioral science. 

Free and open to the public, Mindworks welcomes visitors to participate in studies that examine the science of human behavior, particularly judgment and decision making, and to experience hands-on exhibits showcasing the powerful, real-world impact of behavioral science.

Mindworks was conceived by faculty at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Center for Decision Research and was made possible by generous philanthropic support from PIMCO.

Visit Mindworks at 224 S. Michigan Avenue, across from the Art Institute and Grant Park. Or follow Mindworks on Instagram
