Christo and Jeanne-Claude's "Floating Piers" Installation On Lake Iseo in Lombardy, Italy

For sixteen days – from June 18 through July 3, 2016 – Italy’s Lake Iseo was reimagined. 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric, carried by a modular floating dock system of 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes, undulated with the movement of the waves as The Floating Piers rose just above the surface of the water, giving people a chance to literally walk on the water. The installation was temporary, but you can pre-order the book, which gives an in-depth look at the project. photographs by Emilien Crespo
