Floralis Genérica in Recoleta, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Such a simple concept beautifully executed! Floralis Genérica is a 75 foot high, 52 feet wide stainless steel flower. The six petals open in the morning revealing the slender styles and cap-shaped stigmas. When they close near sunset, the flower glows red. The 18 ton sculpture is encircled by a reflection pond. This crowd-pleasing attraction by architect Eduardo Catalano is located in Plaza de las Naciones Unidas (United Nations Plaza).
