YOU GOT IT!
In 1961, the illustrious art duo Christo and Jeanne-Claude began seeking permission to wrap the German parliament building in fabric and rope. It took 24 years to convince the elected members of Parliament that this was a worthwhile endeavor. Finally, in the summer of 1995, the couple spearheaded the wrapping of the Reichstag in more than 100,000 square meters of aluminum-lined, fireproof polypropylene fabric and 15 km of rope, effectively neutralizing the historical and spatial expressions of a German landmark while creating their most famous “packaged and wrapped object” to date.
