The Floating Piers - Walkways on Lake Iseo, Italy

This is a project by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, we have taken an extract from their site, for the description "For sixteen days – June 18 through July 3, 2016 (weather permitting) – Italy’s Lake Iseo is being reimagined. 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric, carried by a modular floating dock system of 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes, undulate with the movement of the waves as The Floating Piers rise just above the surface of the water."  Access is free for anyone to visit and opens at 06 am and closes at 10 pm.  The Walkway is 3Km (1.8 miles) long and 16m (52ft) wide.  At the end of the 16 days the "components will be removed and industrially recycled".  We are hoping that they either decide to keep the structure on a more permanent basis, or that the components are used for other projects and that more energy is not spent in making them into something else.  Even if they re-process them, at least they are not going to go into a landfill.
