Autodesk Gallery: Powers of Design

One of the newer exhibits in the Autodesk Gallery at One Market is called Powers of Design. It was first featured at the Technology Entertainment & Design (TED) conference last year and features 42 objects of increasing scale. Powers of Design depicts the size of everything from the inconceivably small to the mind-blowingly large. It showcases size by stepping up an order of magnitude with each object.
