Great Photo Opp!

While taking a walk on the way to the museum check out this great example of public art. It's fun to walk around and see the reflections of the sky and clouds in the petals.

A sculpture that moves, opening like the petals of a flower. Grand in scale, eloquent in design, photographs well. Lovely open parkland surroundings.

It is a new installation and a work of modern science. The six petals are lighted with many colours in the evening and the petals are closed at night but I did not get to see this part. I did enjoy the area surrounding the installation and it is a nice open space to just walk, sit, relax and enjoy... More

I have sat and observed it for hours. People come and go all day long. I have been on sunny days and cloudy days. Visit and watch it open.

It's definitely worth a visit. If for no other reason than it's really a neat little structure. The surrounding parks is also very peaceful

beautful unique scultpure that opens in the morning and closes in the evening. it does not open if it is a very windy day but worth seeing even if closed. Near the Recoleta cemetary and the cafes of the Recoleta area. 10-15 minutes to walk around it and take pictures.

For Argentina it is high tech. A metal flower that opens when thr sun shines, and closes when it does not shine. I am a scientist, and not impressed. It has permanent problems and gangs of workers with tall ladder try to fix it. No really worth a visit.

This (sometimes) working sculpture of a flower opens and closes with the rising and going down of the sun. It was commissioned with the intent to show the optimistic views of the country following hard economic times. It is a unique subject for photographers and a must for any visitor.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
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.
