Entry Description

Recognized as the world leader in three-dimensional
design software for manufacturing, building, construction,
engineering, and entertainment, Autodesk asked the
project team to endeavor on an evolved, yet new
workplace that would connect multiple spaces and floors
within their San Francisco-located One Market campus. It
would need to fully embrace their evolving software
technology, and continue to help foster a diverse, multi-
generational workplace where mentoring and mentorship
is encouraged and celebrated.

Utilizing Autodesk’s software to inform and create the 3-
Dimensional design of the space, not only helped develop
the multi-faceted nature of the architecture, but also
allowed employees to directly connect their work to their
workplace. For this particular iteration, the team was
intrigued by creating space inspired by the reductive
nature of 3D printing.

Multiple community ‘tunnels’ were carved through the
center of the undulating core to connect one side of the
building and teams to the other. The Tech Tunnel
integrates technology and analog white boarding for
shared team brainstorming. Locker Lane provides a
central space for storing bike helmets and changing into
your ‘work’ sneakers. The Cozy Corridor is a space
comprised of comfy booths and nooks for hiding away
when you’re looking for some focus time.

Outside of the main, rippled corridor path, a rhythm of
pavilions fall in line with the exposed structural bays that
help to divide the open office area. Each pavilion holds a
combination of meeting spaces and focus rooms. The
corridor side of each structure provides strategic
placement for the ever-changing Autodesk brand
imagery. The back side of each is supplied with ample
glass whiteboard to help facilitate ad hoc brainstorming
and collaboration. Across the height adjustable open
office landscape, there are a variety of casual breakout
spaces that help support the impromptu way Autodesk
employees work.
