Inaugurated in 2002, the Floralis Genérica was a gift to the city from the Argentinian architect Eduardo Catalano.
The biggest flower in the world
Weighing eighteen tons and towering 75 feet high, the imposing Floralis Generica is a striking construction that’s become a recognisable symbol of Buenos Aires within a short space of time.
A flower full of life
One of the most fascinating things about Buenos Aires’ enormous Floralis Genérica is that its petals close every night and then open again in the morning as a new day dawns over the city.
