since the arrival of google maps and google earth we’ve seen a rise in the number of designs that reference satellite images of the earth’s surface. one of the more recent projects to do so is the ‘city plates collection’ by rios clementi hale studios, which features 16 major cities from around the world. each metropolis is represented by a 30 cm (12 inch) diameter porcelain plate.
