January 5, 2014: Floralis Generica


This giant flower of steel, designed by Argentine architect Eduardo Catalano, is located in Plaza de las Naciones Unidas along Avenida Figueroa Alcorta in the Recoleta district of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Created in 2002, this metal flower is meant to represent all the flowers in the world “Floralis Genérica”. The flower automatically opens during the day and closes at night. However, due to a mechanical error, it remains permanently open. Fortunately, it is open rather than closed when the error happens. The flower has six petals, weighs eighteen tons, and is 23 meters high.
