Kreuck Sexton Partners, 2021


Mindworks is the world’s first discovery center and working lab dedicated to behavioral science. Visitors are invited to participate in studies that examine the science of human behavior, particularly judgment and decision making (not available during Open House Chicago), 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. The space, designed by Krueck Sexton Partners with exhibit design by Pentagram, was awarded the 2022 AIA Lerch Bates People's Choice Award in the Community & Cultural category.

Meet the Architects: Architects from Krueck Sexton Partners will be on-site on Saturday from 1-3 pm to display images and answer questions about the design of Mindworks.

Visitor Experience

Visitors are free to tour the gallery featuring eight interactive exhibits on fascinating concepts in the science of decision-making. Please return soon to participate in research studies to earn prizes for helping support science.
