The Mastaba of Abu Dhabi
By the way, how are the plans for Christo and Jeanne-Claude's project for the United Emirates going along?

Perhaps the duo are presently occupied with Over the River?

Meanwhile, wouldn't it be deliciously intriguing to hear that Dubai is scheming to snatch the project away from its rival and that Christo and Jeanne-Claude are receptive to a change of venue?

Just wondering.

  • Sounds cool. Over The River looks to be amazing.

  • Now THAT is an installation!!!

    Meanwhile, they write that they will be planting palm trees, eucalyptus trees, thorn trees and other shrubbery around the Mastaba, at a distance, to act as windbreakers, to minimize the force of the sand and windstorms.

    They should drop the landscaping and create a sandstorm around the Mastaba. A land version of the Blur Building. Or bury the whole thing in the sand once the installation period ends.
