To admire the Arc de Triomphe packaged, just walk in front of it. This is probably the best way to see the rendering of Christo's installation. And it's free!. This is a great idea for the family this fall. At night the effect is absolutely beautiful. It's spectacular, the drape is luminous and gives mystery to the Arc de Triomphe.
The last work of Christo
This temporary installation is the last work of the artist Christo and his wife Jeanne Claude.
- The artist Christo, well known to Parisians since the wrapping of the Pont-Neuf in 1985, had planned to wrap the Arc de Triomphe in 2020
- The installation was cancelled because of Covid. It is finally realized posthumously, according to the wish of Christo who wished the continuation of the project after his death (in May 2020)
- The Arc de Triomphe is packed by "Les Charpentiers de Paris" in 25,000 square meters of recyclable silver-blue polypropylene fabric and 3000 meters of red rope of the same material
