Google’s secret floating barges are no longer a secret but alas they are to be dismantled in the near future.
Last year, the tech world was abuzz with curiosity about why Google had anchored barges in Portland, Maine and San Francisco.
Google later announced that they were planning to use the barges as interactive spaces to teach people about Google technology.
Recently we have discovered that the Google barge sitting in Portland’s Harbor has been sold. It will be disassembled and scrapped, after being bought by an international barging company.
The barge had previously carried 63 shipping containers arranged to form a four-story building where Google was planning to host a technology exhibit.
It appears the exhibit is not to happen.[SOURCE](http://techcrunch.com/2014/08/01/google-barge-sold-for-scrap/)
