Make no mistake about it — Autodesk is a software company. I have two degrees in computer science. I would happy to talk to you about software requirements, object oriented design, programming languages like C++, white box testing techniques like multiple-condition coverage, or just agile software development methodologies in general, but that is of little interest to most people. Instead it's easier to tell the Autodesk story through the work of our customers, and we have a gallery for that.
The Autodesk Gallery at One Market in San Francisco celebrates design — the process of taking a great idea and turning it into a reality. With more than 20 different exhibits regularly on display that showcase the innovative work of Autodesk customers, the gallery illustrates the role technology plays in great design and engineering. One of our exhibits is The Powers of Design. Powers of Design depicts the size of everything from the inconceivably small to the mind-blowingly large. I posted a series of blog articles that describes each of the powers of 10 that make up the exhibit.

In addition to being a walk-through museum with ambassador tours, our gallery is also used to host events like Design Night that feature both food and drink. Recently the Powers of Design exhibit was moved to another part of the space. It is located along the wall at the far end of the gallery.
Now as you sip alcoholic beverages and nibble on hors d'oeuvres, you can contemplate the order of magnitude of the calories consumed.
Exhibit placement is alive in the lab.
