What Is Autodesk The Legend Software Company Giving Back?

Autodesk, Inc., who is a leader of design and engineering software, is opening the Autodesk Gallery at One Market in San Francisco. The 16, 500 square foot Gallery, is located at One Market Street, is dedicated to the spirit of design innovation and has an interactive environment that highlights the impact of software and technology on the process of innovative design. LEED-certification, the space takes green interior design to the highest level with breath taking views, recycled material, certified renewable lumber, local manufacturing and recyclables.

The space features 20 exhibits including the California Academy of Sciences, Ford Shelby GT500, Cathedral of Christ the Light in
Oakland, Calif., and the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge seismic retrofit. Here is a fabulous new space that is intended as a location for designers where we can discuss the latest in technology and be inspired by each others work. I have a long history with Autodesk, my father was one of their 1st Distributors and I worked as West Coast Advertising Director for CADalyst Magazine a trade dedicated soley to Autodesk software. Back then Bill Gates and many other Techies showed up at the after parties. This space represents a legend software company giving back to the design community.
