Floralis Generica


It's a huge flower that sits in the middle of a park in Buenos Aires, 
just waiting to be admired.



It's made of stainless steel and has a special mechanism that allows for it
to open or close its 6 petals.

Saltworks jeans - H&M black coat - Michael Kors black bag - Brown Bandolino boots -
Black Prada Baroque sunglasses
It was donated to the city in 2002 by an architect.


It's a way of paying tribute to all of the flowers in the world.


As you can see I totally loved it - all 23 meters high of it .

Lorena, thank you for sharing so much of Buenos Aires with us. It is beautiful and I'm sure many of us would love to visit there someday. Seems like you are making the most of your trip!

The flower is GORGEOUS.

I really like your coat!

What an amazing piece of art. In our city there is a tree trunk made of stainless steel that is also very striking, but it does not move like this does.

I love that stainless steel flower. Gorgeous and Unique. Great-minded architect, and generous too.

You look so happy in this trip and bundled up in your winter clothes. =)
