L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped is an upcoming artwork by Christo and Jeanne-Claude planned for 2021 that will wrap the Parisian Arc de Triomphe in a silver-blue fabric.


Christo and Jeanne-Claude are known for their wrapping of public monuments, including the Berlin Reichstag building, the Parisian Pont Neuf, and The Gates in New York. L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, one of their largest works, will use 30,000 square meters of silver-blue fabric fastened with 7,000 meters of red rope. Its polypropylene fabric is recyclable.
