Christo: The Gates (Updated Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Christo und Jeanne-Claude werden im Februar 2005 im New Yorker Central Park ihr seit langem geplantes Projekt The Gates verwirklichen. 7500 Tore mit freihängenden Gewebebahnen drapiert werden auf rund 37 km Parkwegen aufgebaut. Den Besuchern im Central Park eröffnet sich beim Durchschreiten der Tore ein goldenes Dach. Beim Blick von den Gebäuden rund um den Central Park werden The Gates als ein goldener Fluss erscheinen, der durch die Bäume hindurchleuchtet und die Form der Parkwege nachzeichnet. Unser Buch Christo & Jeanne-Claude: The Gates, New York 1979-2005 dokumentiert das Projekt von der Planung bis zur Realisation.

Synopsis:

In February 2005, Christo and Jeanne-Claude will complete a monumental work of art in New York City's Central Park. The project, first conceived in 1979, will feature 7500 16-foot-high vinyl gates lining the park's paths, from which will hang saffron-colored fabric panels. TASCHEN will document this project from start to finish in two editions. A first edition will be published in January 2005, containing photo documents and preparatory drawings for The Gates. This edition, published directly after the installation has been realized, will contain 32 extra pages showing photographs of the completed work of art.
