'Big Air Package' by Christo

'Big Air Package' by Christo


Oberhausen, Germany (DE)
Christo filled the Gasometer Oberhausen from March 16 until December 30, 2013 with the installation Big Air Package.

The sculpture is set up in the interior of the industrial monument and is made of 20,350 square metres of translucent fabric and 4,500 metres of rope.

In the inflated state, the envelope, with a weight of 5.3 tons, reaches a height of more than 90 metres, a diameter of 50 metres and a volume of 177,000 cubic metres. The monumental work of art is, temporarily, the largest self-supporting sculpture in the world.
