Robert Sollis, a student at the Royal College of Art wrote an email to Google asking for a marker to be placed on Google Maps for the college’s temporary site in Kensington Gardens. All he got back from Google was an automated response, so he decided to create his own marker out of individual carpet tiles, each measuring 185mm square which directly corresponds to Google’s pixel information from their satellite images. Pretty impressive build that also reminds us of the MAP project.
