This gallery of images from Google’s data centers are amazing! I love that they’ve taken something mundane like the inner workings of the internet and made it beautiful. That’s real culture right there – Google is design focused. It shows even in their data centers.
It tickles my design bone that the blue pipes carry cold water, and the red ones carry hot water.

Hat tip to Frank Chimero for turning me onto these images. He discusses the design aspects here.
