L'Arc de Triomphe wrapped by Christo

This a temporary artwork for Paris, was on view for 16 days from September 18 to October 3, 2021. After Christo’s death, the rojet he had designed has been implemented by his team.

I remember many years ago when Christo has wrapped the Pont Neuf in Paris.

The Arc de Triomphe was wrapped in 25,000 square meters of recyclable polypropylene fabric in silvery blue, and with 3,000 meters of red rope.

They were distributing samples of the fabric used at the opening.
