Floralis Generica, Buenos Aires, Argentina

This structure is called the Floralis Generica and it is located in the United Nations park in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Its a massive metal structure representing a flower and adds to the modernity of the city. The metal flower rested in a circular pool of water. The flower opens and closes with the time of day; during the daytime, the petals open up and during the night, the petals close. I hadn’t seen a photo of this prior to visiting Buenos Aires, so it was even more amazing. We walked all the way around to take photos from all angles. One of the most interesting and surprising treats of our trip!
