A floating art installation on Lake Iseo in Italy…

floating-piers-christo-lake-iseo-italy-june-2016-orange-yellow-fabric-birds-eye_dezeen_1568_3Bulgaria’s artist Christo Vladimirov Javacheff has recently designed an art installation providing a floating walkway at Italy’s Lake Iseo. For just a few weeks, the floating piers will rest on the surface of the picturesque lake, 100 km northeast of Milan, with a 3-km walkway allowing visitors to set off from the mainland town of Sulzano to the islands of Monte Isola and San Paolo, usually accessed by boat. Around 2,20,000 high-density polyethylene cubes have been attached together and anchored by divers for the project. Covering them are 1,00,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric, which will also feature along 1.5 km of Sulzano streets. Together, the piers are some 16 meters wide and 35 centimeters high. The floating piers will be on display from 8th June to 3rd July 2016.
