Along with the late Jeanne-Claude, the artist has made a giant "big air package" that fills up a huge swath of land in Germany.

Architect duo Christo and Jeanne-Claude have finally realized an audacious project that was first envisioned 2010–putting together an enormous air package, without inside support, to fill an enormous space. The pair are known for several other projects, such as the wrapping of the Pont-Neuf bridge in Paris and the Reichstag in Berlin.

The endeavor, which has the straightforward moniker of “Big Air Package” will be accessible to the public at the Gasometer Oberhausen in Germany from March 16 until December 30, 2013. The gargantuan item boasts an area of 177,000 cubic meters, measures 50 meters across and 90 meters from top to bottom.

It’s an extremely big dream and a large achievement, which Jeanne-Claude was, unfortunately, unable to enjoy, as she passed away in 2009 due to issues concerning a brain aneurysm. The gallery below gives a sense of the sheer scale involved.
