Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain The former Torre Girona Chapel on the campus of the Technical University of Catalonia is the home of the school’s supercomputer called MareNostrum. Housed in a glass room, the supercomputer sits inside the chapel, which was built in the 1920s.

It predates the green data center movement, but its location within the religious setting along with the subdued lighting make for an impressive visual experience.
