Artist Calvin Seibert grew up on a ski resort strongly influenced by brutalist architecture in 1960s Colorado. 

“The construction sites were never fenced in, so they were great places to play and always had piles of sand,” he says. Later, after studying at the School of Visual Arts in New York, Seibert began making modernist sandcastles.

A Look Inside Google’s Data centers

Google is offering a fascinating look inside all of its datacenters, which house the bulk of all the data that the search and email giant possesses.

For the first time, we’re giving everyone a glimpse into where we run our products. Now you can take a virtual tour of one of our data centers in Street View. Or browse photo albums of the technology, people, and places that keep Google’s products running.

There are some incredible photos and a ton of insight about what goes on in their datacenter. I love the way the pipes are colored in some and the locations Google has chosen for some of these.
