Another good reason to subscribe to Harper's
In its March issue, Harper's publishes one section of the official blueprints of the site plan for Google's giant The Dalles data center on the banks of the Columbia River in Oregon. (The project goes by the codename 02 on the plan.) Some stats: The warehouses holding the computers are each 68,680 square feet, while the attached cooling stations are 18,800 square feet. The blueprint also shows an administration building and a sizable "transient employee dormitory."
