Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Updated Edition


Temporary Projects, Eternal Impressions

Christo and Jeanne-Claude in XXL

Part biography, part critical analysis, part catalogue, this updated edition brings back TASCHEN’s best-selling Collector’s Edition, designed by Christo himself. It spans Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s entire work, from early drawings and family photos to plans for future projects.

Hundreds of photographs and drawings trace the couple’s projects from the past 10 years, including The Floating Piers and The London Mastaba, as well as works in progress such as The Mastaba of Abu Dhabi and L’Arc de Triomphe Wrapped, Paris.

In addition to comprehensive photographic documentation by Wolfgang Volz and an updated introduction by Paul Goldberger, the book features a conversation between the artists and the author. It was the last conversation about their work that Jeanne-Claude had before her passing in 2009. The result is an eloquent homage to Jeanne-Claude and a celebration of the work of two artists whose imagination has affected the landscape of every continent.

Il fotografo

Wolfgang Volz (nato a Tuttlingen nel 1948) ha lavorato con Christo e Jeanne-Claude dal 1972, occupandosi, fra l’altro, della fotografia delle opere. Durante i progetti Wrapped Reichstag e Wrapped Trees e nell’installazione di The Wall è stato direttore tecnico per la realizzazione delle opere. Da questa stretta collaborazione sono nati molti libri e più di 300 mostre in musei e gallerie di tutto il mondo. Wolfgang Volz vive e lavora a Stoccolma.


Paul Goldberger is the Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic of The New Yorker, where, since 1997, he has written the "Sky Line" column, and is the author of several books, including Why Architecture Matters (2009) and Christo and Jeanne-Claude (2010, for TASCHEN). He lectures widely on architecture, design, historic preservation and cities, and has taught at both Yale School of Architecture and the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley.
