AutoCAD 2008 cover image

If you wonder where the cover image on the AutoCAD 2008 box is taken it is from McCormick Tribune Campus Center in Chicago, IL. The architectural design is by the architect Rem Koolhaas of OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture). The design includes a concrete and stainless steel tube (seen on the cover image) that encloses a 530-foot stretch of the CTA elevated railroad tracks, passing directly over the one-story campus center building. The tube dampens the sound of trains overhead.
But was it done using AutoCAD?

    After reading http://www.vanityfair.com/ontheweb/features/2007/02/autumn200702?printable=true&currentPage=all I had a thought to do the same thing with the AutoCAD 2008 image. I knew it would not be hard as was depicted in the Autumn article. Our marketing department knew all of the particulars. Still I thought it would be nice to see some pictures of the same location from another vantage point or at another time of year. Thanks for the alternate shots.
