[THREAD] Recently, we saw the #ArcDeTriomphe wrapped up – an artwork by Christo and Jeanne Claude that seemingly appeared overnight.
But covering this immense #monument with fabric was no light matter; how did @VINCIConstruc do it? Here’s how: 😉👇
Step 1 ➡️ supplying two trusses – i.e., two circular cable systems to maintain the fabric from the penultimate floor of the #ArcDeTriomphe.
👇 The small blue device was used to keep the cables taut.
Step 2 ➡️ complete this system with dividers, used to adjust the cables to the rectangular shape of the #ArcDeTriomple 👇
Voilà – the #arcdetriomphewrapped, Paris (1961-2021) was then ready to be admired!
