Historic structures in the mountains of California are being wrapped, Christo-style, in reflective silver sheets to help protect them against the heat of wildfires.
The wrap—available from companies such as Firezat, who explain how to encase your own house as if wrapping a giant birthday present—has been applied to the structures by concerned archaeologists in collaborations with local fire crews.
Gleaming villages of historically preserved structures thus shine with reflected firelight amidst the trees, waiting like an astronaut's art project as the rest of the forest burns.
