Mylar and paper construction, overall: 10 1/2 in. x 6 3/4 in. (26.7 cm x 17.1 cm)

Anticipating his monumental wrapped buildings, Christo first addressed the aesthetics of display with Show Cases, Show Windows, and Store Fronts. Although each is set off with a clear glass facade, the view is immediately occluded by drapes of fabric or paper lining the interior. For SMS, Christo combined his blueprint-like maquettes with the architectural dimensionality of his installations; a rendition of the life-size Corridor Store Front, this hinged booklet reveals an interior sketch through transparent mylar windows cut out of the cover.
