For the first time ever, Autodesk will offer the public a glimpse of their thinking and work around the future of engineering and design. From 9 – 23 October, Autodesk will bring to Paris’ Marais district its first Autodesk Gallery pop-up offering innovative and interactive exhibits on the future of areas such as architecture, industrial design, manufacturing, film and television, fine arts, and fashion. The gallery will be open daily during this period from 11h – 17h30 and admission will be free.

Titled “The Future of How Things are Made”, their pop-up Gallery will show what’s possible with the latest advances in 3D design technology. In addition to various workshops and lectures, there will also be various cutting edge and interactive elements including the digital fabrication workshop where visitors can create objects with design software, 3D printers, and laser cutters, a workshop where a robot artist will draw on paper while a human artist will be creating a 3D printing art installation, and more.

Following on the success of their permanent gallery in San Francisco, which has already welcomed over 240k visitors since 2008, they decided to expand the concept and launch a pop-up gallery. Paris was the natural choice for Autodesk for their first pop-up as according to Autodesk it “sits at the intersection of design, engineering and art and has a vibrant scene of people and companies doing interesting things in this space, some of whom we’ll be showcasing. It’s an ideal city for talking about the future of how things will be made.”

You can visit the pop-up store when you like during these dates.  However, if you’d like to attend one of the unique evening events they’ll be having throughout the month, make sure to register here.
