urban wrapping

 

The wrapping of European monuments, when they are being renovated, has become a very interesting medium, often spectacularly conceived and sometimes poorly executed.

Here is the historic heart of the city (the former royal palace and Marie-Antoinette’s jail) now imprisoned by the Dior brand.  Next to it is Le Pont Neuf, which was wrapped by conceptual artist Christo in 1985.
