Floralis Generica, Buenos Aires

4.2
A giant steel flower reveling in the sun's rays, Floralis Generica dazzles as its petals unfurl afresh each morning. Sprouting forth from a reflecting pool, this giant mechanical bloom represents the rebirth of the new day. Gifted to the people of Buenos Aires in 2002 by architect Eduardo Catalano, the monument has quickly become one of the city's most appealing attractions. At 23 m (75.5 ft), the sculpture cuts an impressive figure any time of day. If you arrive at sunrise, you'll see the flower gradually raise its head to the sky over the course of 20 minutes; at sunset, you can bid goodnight to the closing petals.

  • This place changes of environment, is not the same at night than in the day. I personally liked more than day because it is possible to explore its surroundings, nearby buildings full of Academy.

  • It is located in a park, very large where one can sit, take the Sun, or beers and share with other people. I got in the afternoon and one looks like it is closing. All depended and the hour in which one arrives. It looks cute! And super interesting also its operation. Is close to other places and museums can then go back to see it closed!

  • The flower is fantastic and magnificent, but it is really a shame that it doesn't work, but still look good! I recommend you to visit it!
  • So beautiful, got there before it closes and watched it finish closing up. So amazing in the night even when display lights are turned on.
  • One of the newer and better maintained public places in Buenos Aires. Most of the other monuments in the other parks I visited looked uncared, dark, graffiti written over statues and signs. The flower structure is unique and one can view it from many seats provided around the monument. I visited the place during the day, but I believe that the lights are turned on at night which should make it look more beautiful.
  • Classic Northern Buenos Aires landmark, the park has been recently acconditioned and is right next to the UBA law school and the beaux arts museum too. Nice part of an evening.
  • Thought the cloud gate (“the bean”) sculpture in Chicago’s Millennium Park was cool, and it is, but Floralis Generica in BA has it beat to hell.
