Incredible Floating Walkway Being Constructed Across Italian Lake

Christo15

“The Floating Piers” is a giant floating dock system nearing completion on Lake Iseo in Italy. 220,000 high-density poly-ethylene cubes will be covered in 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric to create an epic walkway 3 kilometers long.

The project is the brainchild of artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, known for large-scale installations. Although Jeanne-Claude passed away in 2009, Christo has continued to pursue “The Floating Piers”, originally conceived together in 1970. More progress shots below!

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
