Floralis generica

Eduardo Catalano was the Argentine architect that built this magnificent flower. He graduated as an architect from the UBA in 1940. And then continued his studies at Harvard University, where he took classes with two great masters, referents of the Modern Movement: the German Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus School, and Hungarian architect Marcel Breuer. In Raleigh, North Carolina, a street is named after him: Catalano Drive. There, in 1954, he designed a house that was very famous and was praised even by Frank Lloyd Wright, the architect who designed the Guggenheim museum in New York. He considered it "the American house" of the decade. The construction was demolished the same year that Catalano began to make the Floralis. In addition to the flower, in Buenos Aires Catalano built the Edificio del Plata, in front of the Obelisk; Ciudad Universitaria, together with Horacio Caminos and Eduardo Sacriste; and the Embassy of the United States, among others.
