Floralis Genérica

Monument in Recoleta & Barrio Norte

This gargantuan flower sculpture, located smack in the center of Plaza Naciones Unidas, is the inspired creation of architect Eduardo Catalano, who designed and funded the project in 2002. The giant aluminum and steel petals are 20m high and used to close like a real flower, from dusk until dawn – until the gears broke, that is.
