The Gates

Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Gates, Central Park, New York City

From Flavorpill:

Constructed of 15,000 steel bases and over one million square feet of fabric, The Gates is a monumental project. Christo and Jeanne-Claude, artists famous for their large-scale environmental works, first proposed the installation in 1979, but it wasn't granted approval until 2003. With over 7,000 gates — decorated with fluttering and luminous golden fabric — the 23 miles of walkways in Central Park are to be transformed into a saffron river winding through the winter landscape. Visible in its entirety from the roof of the Met, The Gates will only be on display for 16 short days before it's dismantled and all of the materials recycled.
