Multiporphyrin arrays constructed on a pillar[5]arene scaffold adopt a folded conformation owing to an intramolecular complexation of the peripheral ZnII-porphyrin moieties by 1,2,3-triazole subunits. External stimuli can break the intramolecular coordination at the origin of the folding and the resulting molecular motions mimic the blooming of a flower.
