RE: pictures of design labs/design rooms

I am looking for pictures of design rooms from creative design firm or design groups in software development companies. Examples would be the design room at Adobe, Peoplesoft, etc.

Web Site Monitoring & Analytics

My apologies if this is a bit off-topic...
