In which city can you find this giant metal flower?

This massive, metallic blossom called “Floralis Generica” has more moves than your average sculpture. Each morning, the flower blossoms in a pool of water next to the National Museum of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Its six 42-foot-long petals unfurl over a period of about 20 minutes, starting at 8 a.m.

At sunset, the petals close again, as glowing red lights illuminate them in the twilight. The 18-ton sculpture is about 52 feet wide when closed, but spreads to more than twice that when opened. It was created and paid for by Argentine architect Eduardo Catalano and has graced the museum’s grounds since 2002.
