Air Packages

This scale model for a proposed "air package" for the Museum of Modern Art, New York, is related to the monumental pneumatic structures--membranes containing only air--that Christo and Jeanne-Claude created in the mid-1960s. While some were borne aloft, this particular air package (which was never realized) would have appeared as though it had landed on the terrace in the museum's sculpture garden.
