Invasion of the Air Conditioners

Air Conditioner units clinging to the sides of buildings are a regular sight these days, especially in humid parts of the world, and as such generally exist without so much as a glance from passers-by. The problem may only grow worse as global temperatures rise. Check out our Global Warming Statistics page to learn more. It’s only when you step back and actually focus on the (usually) creamy beige boxes that you begin to realise just how common they are and just how sweaty the general population of these parts would be without them. We came across a photo today (the first one below) that actually blew our minds (no pun intended) and resulted in a search for more examples of buildings seemingly under attack from exterior A/C units. So, to celebrate these urban barnacles, here are just a few examples of Extreme Air Conditioning.
