Buenos Aires’ Floralis Genérica is a 66-foot-high (20m) 18-tonne aluminum flower sculpture located the middle of Recoleta. The structure, which was broken for almost a decade, opens at dawn and closes at dusk. The flower is located in the Plaza Naciones Unidas– close to the beautiful Facultad de Derecho de la Universidad de Buenos Aires and behind El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes over Avenida Figueroa Alcorta.
The flower was designed and paid for by architect Eduardo Catalano and commissioned from the Lockheed Martin airplane factory. There is plenty of green space around Floralis Genérica, so bring a blanket and a bottle of wine to enjoy the day.
