These Giant Umbrella-like Flowers Bloom When Pedestrians Stand Under Them

Imagine if big colorful flowers would live above our heads. And whenever we would raise our head would those beautiful bounty flowers just hanging in the sky.

Now imagine if this utopic and dreamy idea would become true, just slightly more techy-ish.

The architecture firm developed a public installation that offers an artistic and aesthetic sight to the city roads.  Located in Vallero Square in the heart of Jerusalem in Israel, the flowers have been installed as part of the municipality’s effort to improve the urban space. Flowers play the role of umbrellas in the sun and at night they serve as lights.

HQ Architects says, “The urban space suddenly reacts to the people using it.” People can also utilize the flowers for shade from the sun or for light when nighttime approaches. And once the square is no longer bustling with people, the flowers wilt and close, their vibrant petals resting until the next surge of activity within their vicinity encourages them to bloom once more.

The four giant flowers, which are 30 feet tall, have been placed in key positions, enabling them to be viewed from all around the square and the nearby market. Each of the flowers also provides a sense of movement to the square, as they bloom by inflating themselves when pedestrians walk by, but when there are no people, they close.
