Thanks for posting this. I've long wanted to see a Christo project and now I will as I'll be in London in July. I missed the Central Park one and the Lake Iseo one -both by only about a week.

That is supposed to be art? I will make sure to avoid the park if I get to London before it is removed.

It'll make an interesting comparison with this year's Serpentine Pavilion nearby.
