The article focuses on how French concept artist Christo packaged the Gesellschaftshaus, the social building of BASF, in polyamide as a customer event during the Forum pack.it.2006 held in Ludwigshafen, Germany in September 2006. The project is similar to the work done by the artist with polypropylene for the Reichstag building in Berlin, Germany. An intricate system of pumps moves the gleaming polyamide 6 sheets of the Gesellschaftshaus around, simulating a fluttering in the wind.
