Google Just Unveiled A 450-Foot Mural That Wraps Around Its New York Headquarters

There’s something new outside Google’s headquarters in New York: a mural that wraps around the entire building showing the history of the Chelsea neighbourhood where the HQ is located.

It’s 450 feet long.

WNYC reports that it was designed by two 29 year olds, Mark Miller and Dave Franzese, who run a design studio called Dark Igloo.

Chelsea Illustrated created an interactive walkthrough of the whole thing — check it out here.

Here are a couple of pictures Google took of the installation.
