We visited this during the day and it was exactly as it is in the pictures. However we visited it as the sun was setting and the pictures we got were incredible. A visit here is a perfect way to end any evening in Buenos Aires.

Interesting sculpture to see, but it isn't working. The flower doesn't opens. The story is: some artist made this sculpture from recycled materials that aviation used. And he donated it to the city. I wasn't working in the start bu they fixed it. Now it isn't working again but the artist is dead and nobody seems to care about it.

so, it basically is what you see in the picture...nothing more, so yeah, if you're into very big pieces of metal with a slight reminiscence to what it seems to be a flower sorta, moving very slowly look no further, if not well...whatever

Be sure to see the sculpture both by day and by night -- the flower closes up and changes color after dark.

This sculpture is huge and well done. There is a reflecting pond below it where the sculpture is mirrored. Easy walk from Ricolleta.

Located in a very nice area, very close to museums, the B.A. Law School, etc. you should not miss the opportunity to have your picture taken. If you happen to be there by dusk, you will see it close or dare go at dawn and you will see it open.

Even though it is an impressive piece of art, hundreds of tons of metal that move slowly throughout the day, it is a quick see.

Because Buenos Aires has a certain level of grime to it, and an exorbitant amount of dog faeces, this immaculately shiny flower sculpture is a welcome addition to the landscape. There's not much else in the park, but there are some other attractions nearby (like MALBA and Recoleta Cultural Centre), so it wouldn't be a completely wasted journey if you... More

After all the beautiful parks and historical monuments there are in the city, this modern one is rather dull. A bit kitsch, in my opinion.

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.
