Jul 2, 2016 - An old railway bridge that had become an eyesore in Wuppertal, Germany, now surprises passersby with a neon underbelly that looks like a supersize Lego project. [54] In the modernisation scheme, the River Test, which runs through the site, was widened and used as an organisational device. [74][75] The project initially involved a series of dome-shaped buildings, but the project was revised later in 2016, with three buildings to be built in two different sites – one immediately adjacent to Googleplex, the other two smaller buildings a few blocks away.
