From June 18 to July 3, 2016, 100 kilometers east of Milan and 200 kilometers west of Venice, thousands of people will walk on water. The Floating Piers by Christo and JeanneClaude deploys 70,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric above a modular floating dock system of 220,000 highdensity polyethylene cubes to create a temporary threekilometer walkway across the surface of Lake Iseo, connecting the mainland to the islands of Monte Isola and San Paolo. The piers are 16 meters wide and approximately 40 centimeters high, with sloping sides. Visitors experience the artwork by walking from Sulzano to Monte Isola and over to San Paolo. The mountains surrounding the lake also offer a bird'seye view of the project, revealing unnoticed angles and perspectives.The Floating Piers is Christo and JeanneClaude's first largescale project since they realized The Gates in 2005 and draws upon their established history of projects in Italy, including Wrapped Fountain and Wrapped Medieval Tower in Spoleto, 1968; Wrapped Monuments in Milan, 1970; and The Wall Wrapped Roman Wall in Rome, 197374. As with all of Christo and JeanneClaude's projects, The Floating Piers is funded entirely through the sale of Christo's original works of art. After the 16day exhibition, all components will be removed and recycled.This book presents rich photographic coverage of The Floating Piers alongside sketches, models, documents and designs, revealing the process behind this waterborne work of art. Incorporating everything from approval procedures to the manufacture of fabric and anchoring elements, it testifies not only to Christo and JeanneClaude's unique creative imagination but also to the immense technical, bureaucratic, and logistical feats that allowed the concept to take float.
