There is not much to say about this piece of art surrounded by the many parks of BA. It is nice to see, and take a picture, but that is about it. There are a few benches and chairs, but unless you plan on staying...More

This metallic flower opens and closes each day in the morning and evening, when it works which is not always. It's impressive and huge and worth a quick look if your in the area.

what a lovely work of art - bright and interactive in a pleasant surrounding on which people gather in family and social groups. This large yet gentle sculpture is a cross between nature and satellite dish - loved it.

It is nice to see modern art in a city but to be honest it is not that big deal. It is huge and bombastic.

A small but Pretty grassy park with wooden lounge chairs and a good walking path around the flower/pond. Tip: the park seems to be fully gated in with the only entrance in the southeast corner (beside university).

The large steel petals of the flower open with the sunrise until its shape is complete. It begins to close at the golden hour and is fully closed by sunset. Good for a short stop. Don’t miss the nearby Paseo de Rosedal.

This metal flow will open and close as per the sunrise and sunset. There is nothing great about the location but still a nice place to relax on a good evening.

Yes, of course you can wine it is in a public park. It is lit up at night.

I have a few questions regarding this sculpture: -Is it open by day and closed by night? -If so, what time in the evening does it start to close -Does the closing of the petals happen quickly, or does it take a half hour, or all day, etc? If all day, when is the flower most open? Thanks!

Thanks :) I found that article earlier but somehow missed the "20 minutes" part. I'm still kind of confused regarding it closing at sunset. Is it exactly at sunset which changes throughout the year, or is there a specific time (ie 6:30pm) that it closes? I ask because I want to see it but come at the right time so I don't have to spend too much time waiting...
