Covering 23 miles of New York's Central Park, "The Gates will comprise 7,500 glorious gates, each 16 feet high with a free-hanging cloth panel suspended from the top. This book describes every step of this major installation by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, from its conception in 1979 to the many technical challenges. Photographer Wolfgang Volz documents the work, while maps, architectural designs, drawings, collages, and an informative commentary explore and explain it.
