Citadel founder Ken Griffin said the firm’s new offices at 425 Park Ave. will be designed to be a “tranquil” and “zen” environment to help people “be calm and focus and make good decisions.”

In the meantime, he’s helping create an edgy space for art in a newer part of town, with a $25 million gift to the Shed at Hudson Yards, a 500-seat theater that will bear his name. Guests at the Shed’s Founders Dinner learned about the gift Sunday night.
