I proudly present to you my spur gear building designed in AutoCAD Architectural Desktop (ADT) r1 circa 1998 and codenamed Portsmouth. I tried to convince the Autodesk AEC team then located in Henniker New Hampshire I was a mechanical designer and had little architectural design skills. It was the warped humor of mine, but as I recall the architecture professionals were not thinking it was as funny as did I.
The office space in my spur gear building was really quite nice with each gear tooth having an office with a window and then in the center a central conference room. Frank Lloyd Wright would have been proud, ok maybe that’s a stretch. Still it was amazing that the first beta of what later became AutoCAD Architecture was able to solve the gear roof.
