Colorful Hong Kong Building Construction Sites

Photographer Peter Steinhauer‘s drew attention to staying in Hong Kong, the appearance of bright multi-colored pillars in the midst of the gray mass of skyscrapers. Having studied the question carefully, the author has created a series of images. In his two Cocoons series, Steinhauer, who lived in Asia for near twenty years, beautifully captured the style of construction that is unique to Hong Kong in which the building is wrapped in silk fabric to prevent debris from falling onto the street and pedestrians below. It is noteworthy that it is not just the pillars of different colors. And even more interesting that these "pods" are used, both in the construction and dismantling at skyscrapers.

Floralis Henerika or the Generic Flower in Latin, is one of the most brilliant and fascinating artistic monument, made of steel and aluminum in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At the heart of the Plaza Naciones Unidas of United Nations Square, in the 40-meter mirror pond, the Floralis Generica, a giant silver flower, has been a striking city landmark since it opened in 2002. The sculpture was created and paid for Sculptra Eduardo Catalano. this flower is being 23 metres high and weighing in at 18 tonnes. When the petals are open they span 32 metres and when closed only 16 metres. One of the fascinating features of this sculpture is that it acts like a real flower in that its gigantic petals are open during the day and then close for the night with a red glow emanating from within. Catalano once said that the flower "is a synthesis of all the flowers and is both a hope that is reborn every day to open."
