The floating showrooms are being constructed of over 40 interchangeable shipping containers which have been built with a modular design that will allow Google to ship them around the world and truck them over land to bring the attraction to more than just coastal communities. Other reports suggest that the the entire roof will be fashioned into a party deck where Google will host launch parties for VIPs and members of the media.
