Good article in Ars Technica on new (and old!) designs for cooling data centers.

This also made me think of an office building in Harare, Zimbabwe that was inspired by the cooling concept of a termite mound. Images below are from a great piece on inhabitat.com.  Janine Benyus talks about this and more examples of biomimicry here.
