FLOATING PIERS - CHRISTO AND JEANNE-CLAUDE
he Floating Piers was first conceived by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in 1970. It was Christo's first large-scale project since Christo and Jeanne-Claude realized The Gates in 2005, and since Jeanne-Claude passed away in 2009.
As with all of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's projects, The Floating Piers was funded entirely through the sale of Christo's original works of art. After the 16-day exhibition, all components were removed and industrially recycled.
