Covered in Gold

I remember seeing a building covered up in class, but this time, the building is covered in gold wallpaper instead.

Below are two paragraphs about the artist and the project from Booooooom.com:

“Known for staging large-scale, site-specific architectural interventions around the world, Brooklyn-based artist Ian Strange’s latest sees him in Poland, wrapping a 600 square-metre residential building entirely in gold wallpaper.

Titled “ZŁOTY” after the Polish term for “golden”, the project took over 3 weeks to complete. And while the wallpaper will gradually deteriorate over time, that’s part of the point as the piece is intended to reflect the local history of the area and the collapse of a once booming mining industry. See more images below.”
