Pretty unusual from all angles

Make a quick stop to admire the magnificently modern piece of sculpture that epitomizes the value that the city puts on public spaces and art!

I liked the idea of the flower opens and closes, but nothing is that impressive beyond that. Nice park, so it would be good to check it out if you are in the neibour hood, otherwise don't bother.

Only go if you have some spare time, perhaps before visiting the MALBA - otherwise it is a place which could be given a miss.

Science and technology in a metallic flower that, as in a Beatles song, "will follow the Sun". A very beautiful stainless steel flower with an electronic controlling device tha allows it to open, close and follow the sun.

Buenos Aires typical symbol is the Obelisco, but I dare say the Floralis Generica better deserves this honor. A great piece of electronic art, its photosensitive structure makes it react to the sunlight, closing in the dusk and opening up from dawn.

This is a really interesting sculpture that's not to be missed while visiting Buenos Aires. It's located in Palmero - very close to the Museo Macional De Bella Artes (National art gallery) and MALBA (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires) so is best combined with a visit to one of these. It was designed by the Argentine architect Eduardo... More

The flower made out of airplane parts in beautiful gardens. Well worth finding. It is supposed to open during the day and close the petals at night... We saw it with petals open...

One of the things that I love about BA is its open air art. This one in particular. It is striking, uplifting, and wildly creative all at once.

We stayed close to this monument in Palermo Chico and spent lazy afternoons under this metal flower. Its amazing to behold. At night it lights up and makes for a romantic spot. A visit to this special art piece is recommended

Very imposing sculpture and quite hard to photograph. The sun had just come out when we visited but we found the bloom not fully out - Therefore I assume the mechanical opening system is manual! Definitely worth a visit!

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
