Floris Generica is the name of a huge steel and aluminum sculpture in the city of Buenos Aires Argentina. It sits in a park above a reflecting pool in the Plaza de las Naciones Unidas. It was a gift to the city from Argentine architect Eduardo Catalano who is quoted as saying his flower “ is a synthesis of all flowers and is a hope that is reborn every day to open”. It was created in 2002. The sculpture was designed to close its petals at night and reopen every morning when the sun shines although, currently the mechanism to control this movement is disabled.
It certainly is a beautiful piece that I enjoyed photographing from every angle.
