|Yes the blog article title and image are a lampoon/rip-off of the very funny 2006 Ben Stiller movie Night at the Museum. We recently held meetings in San Francisco. I can attest to the splendor and environmental friendliness of our One Market facility on the 2nd floor. Autodesk Labs Software Engineer, John Schmier, participated in Thursday night's opening ceremony of The Gallery at One Market and filed this report.|
The Gallery is a design environment dedicated to exploring why design matters and how it happens, from initial vision through final creation. It's a showcase of the inspiring work that our customers are doing across industries and around the world, and how technology is making the design process more efficient, more profitable, and more sustainable. This was my unique opportunity to mingle with some of the design world's leading innovators, while touring exhibits featuring work from some of Autodesk's most exciting customers, such as Ford Motor Company; LEGO; Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; Permasteelisa; California Academy of Sciences; California Department of Transportation; ARUP; and Herman Miller.
Autodesk Labs and Autodesk Research set up many new and exciting technologies for guests to explore and experience while talking with the developers and designers of these technologies. Autodesk Labs showcased the Digital Pen, Multi-Touch enabled Autodesk Design Review, Wii enabled Autodesk Design Review, and Project Showroom. Autodesk Research showcased the Boom Chameleon and Augmented Reality.

The event was well attended and everyone was very engaged in the technologies showcased.
The Gallery is designed to pay tribute to the gamut of design creators including the part played by CAD CAM software, collaboration solution software, deck design software, drafting software, GIS software, graphic design software, house design software, interior design software, kitchen design software, landscape design software, modeling software, and movie editing software. Thanks John.
