“This June, renowned land artist Christo and his team will transform Lake Iseo in Lombardy, Italy, by building a 75,000-square-foot floating pier that visitors will be able to walk across. The plans—revealed on April 23 at Rome’s MAXXI: National Museum of the 21st Century Arts, designed by Zaha Hadid, Hon. FAIA—feature 200,000 high-density polyethylene cubes that will swell with the water’s movement and be wrapped in yellow fabric, a feature which the artist is famous for. Titled The Floating Piers, visitors can travel from Sulzano, located in the bottom right portion of the lake, up to Monte Isola and San Paolo, the islands in the middle of it that the entire installation encircles, for a 16-day period.”
