Big Air Package by Christo and Jeanne-Claude

The latest project from Christo, the contemporary artist known for his sprawling, large-scale works with late wife and collaborator Jeanne-Claude, opened in Germany. Big Air Package is a massive, voluminous fabric dome reaching 90 meters high and 50 meters wide. According to the artist’s website, it is the largest inflated envelope (without a skeleton) ever. It completely fills the Gasometer Oberhausen, a large former gas holder and exhibition hall in western Germany. The goal, said Christo, 77, is to leave visitors “virtually swimming in light.”
