Floralis Genérica

 The Floralis Genérica is a flower with a difference. A flower that opens (at least it did till 2010!) at break of day and closes at sunset! A flower that according to its creator “is a synthesis of all the flowers in the world, and is a hope that is reborn every day to open”.

Floralis Genérica – Buenos Aires

The Floralis Genérica is a mechanical stainless steel installation, gifted to the city of Buenos Aires in 2002 by the architect Eduardo Catalano, and located in a park off the Avenida Figueroa Alcorta. I shot this from the road en route to the Paseo Alcorta mall and couldn’t quite capture the reflecting pool underneath.

Not technically beautiful perhaps, but at 23 meters high and with its buffed steel petals, it is hardly a wall flower!

Until next time, happy travels wherever life takes you!
