On Thursday, the Silicon Valley search engine giant announced it recently sent its Street View Trekker backpack camera system to the Galápagos Islands to capture panoramic images of the region’s sulfur mines, lava tunnels, lush forests and wondrous waters as well as the inimitable wildlife that calls this UNESCO World Heritage Site home.

City of St. Louis Public Library Central Library ExpansionCannon Design
Designed by famed architect Cass Gilbert, the Saint Louis Public Library opened in 1912 as a centerpiece of downtown Saint Louis, and displays the exuberant grandeur typical of the era. The historic landmark boasts a monumental entrance above stone steps on Olive Street, a colossal front arcade adorned with bas-reliefs, facades of rusticated Maine granite, and an interior oval central pavilion surrounded by four light courts. After nearly a century of civic use, the building is to be renewed and transformed as a community information center serving the needs of a new generation of users.
The $45 million renovation of the 185,000 sf building updates the library’s research and service capabilities while restoring the splendor of the library’s classic historic rooms including its Great Hall.
