Giant flower opens and closes with sun. Reflecting pool below adds sparkle. You can take interesting photos of aircraft taking off or landing from nearby airport when conditions are right. Set in United Nations park. Lots of families present.

The area was green and well kept and the sculpture was amazing. Worth seeing and you could spend time in the park if you would like.

Make sure on a visit to Buenos Aires that you include the Floralis Generica. It is an amazing piece of art and the refections from the petals are stunning.. The petals do open but not if there is a hint of breeze.

Came past the monument twice - realised that the 'petals' open and close according to the time of day! Thought it was pretty cool - head closer to 3pm if you want to see it open.

A massive chrome flower that is supposed to open and close during the course of the day according to the position of the sun. We were told that one petal is broken, and they are looking for funds to fix it -- but when we...More

A must see for sure. Quite fascinating up close. There is a surrounding fence. On some days at various times the fence is opened and you can sit on the sun lounges. You can still take photos through the fence if the gate is closed....More
