Video: The hidden architecture of cooling towers

All across Europe, in remote areas you can find tall, concrete towers used for cooling water or condensing steam.

Belgian photographer Reginald Van de Velde gained access to the inner workings of more than thirty cooling towers across Europe. You can see the photos now - just search for World Update in Pictures online. He took Dan Damon on a tour of these hidden and beguiling structures.
