Autodesk makes software for people who make things. If you've ever driven a high-performance car, admired a towering skyscraper, used a smartphone, or watched a great film, chances are you've experienced what millions of Autodesk customers are doing with our software. Autodesk gives you the power to make anything, but some segments of the general public are not yet aware of 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 about 60 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. Autodesk Gallery Ambassadors conduct gallery tours as a sideline to their day jobs. The tours provide ambassadors with opportunities to practice public speaking in front of small groups by informing visitors about what our customers imagine, design, and make using our software.
Sometimes exhibits from the gallery go on the road and appear at special events, like pop-up galleries that we have hosted in Paris, London, Tokyo, and Toronto. In contrast, sometimes exhibits are created for special events and then make their way to the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco. For example, at last year's Autodesk University in Las Vegas, we debuted 19 new exhibits. Some of these may resurface in San Francisco.
The Ireland's New Children's Hospital exhibit is one such exhibit from AU:
- Our Lady's Children’s Hospital Crumlin // more
- Temple Street Children's University Hospital // more
- National Children's Hospital at Tallaght Hospital // more
- Autodesk 3ds Max // more
- Autodesk AutoCAD // more
- Autodesk BIM 360 (Docs, Design, Field, Glue, Plan) // more
- Autodesk Insight // more
- Autodesk Civil 3D // more
- Autodesk Dynamo Studio // more
- Autodesk Navisworks // more
- Autodesk ReCap // more
- Autodesk Revit // more
- BIM Interoperability Tools (Model Checker for Revit)
Ireland's new children's hospital brings together three existing children's hospitals, so children with complicated and serious illnesses can receive all their treatment in one location.
The new children's hospital is the most significant capital investment project ever undertaken in healthcare in Ireland. The new children's hospital will be a world class facility to look after children and young people from all over Ireland who have complicated and serious illnesses and who are in need of specialist and complex care. The hospital and the two satellite centers in Dublin will provide all the "local hospital" pediatric secondary care to children in local population.
The project will bring together three existing children's hospitals:
- Our Lady's Children’s Hospital Crumlin
- Temple Street Children's University Hospital
- National Children's Hospital at Tallaght Hospital
These hospitals will merge to form the Children's Hospital Group before the transition to the new facilities.
Ireland's new children's hospital will be Ireland's first public digital hospital — recording, tracking, and monitoring patient data digitally.
The new children's hospital will be Ireland's first public digital hospital. Its completion will enhance how acute children's health services are delivered, resulting in improved survival rates for the sickest children and young people. For the first time, all pediatric specialties will be "under one roof." Not only will this mean that the sickest children and young people will receive all their treatment in one location, it will be in a world class physical environment making it a much better experience for these children and their families.
The new hospital will be Ireland's first to record, track, and monitor patient data digitally. This commitment to the possibilities of digital processes is mirrored in the design and construction phase through the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM). During the design and construction process, using a BIM model allows all stakeholders to work from the latest information and reduces costs, saves time, and eliminates confusion. Autodesk is proud to have its software be a part of these efforts.
The atrium at New Children's Hospital features a stepped seating area. The rooms are very colorful to cheer up the patients.

Autodesk has always been an automation company. Today, more than ever, that means helping our customers automate their design and make processes. We help them embrace the future of making, where they can do more (e.g., efficiency, performance, quality), with less (e.g., energy, raw materials, timeframes, waste of human potential), and realize the opportunity for better (e.g., innovation, user experience, return on investment). The construction and manufacturing industries are converging. Customers who make buildings are adopting processes traditionally employed by customers who make things. Practices like mass production and quality control are being applied at construction sites. A digital process based on this approach helps builders do more and better with less.
This is a moment that matters. The inevitability of more demand and the reality of less means an opportunity for something better. With advances in design and automation, lessons learned through adjacent industries and peers, and integrations across the technology spectrum, we can design and make a better world. Together, we can make anything.
The Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco is open to the public on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. There is a guided tour on Wednesdays at 12:30 pm and a self-guided audio tour available anytime. Admission is free. Visit us.
Healthcare is alive in the lab.
