Back to the roots with the organic architecture of Senosiain

Javier Senosiain is one of the greatest exponents of the organic architecture and one of the most prominent men in his area of Mexico and the world.

Born in 1948 and his main interest is to build bridges between constructions, nature and human being.

His works suggest the harmony that should keep the area with that built by man.

The irregularities of the territory makes them an opportunity to adapt to the environment.

It is part of what is the modern ideal in this subject.

He is a graduate of the School of Architecture of the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

He had influences from Mathias Goeritz, Carlos Mijares or Luis Barragán, but erected his own style.

In it the plastic and the color of Mexico coexist. Respect the curved spaces, the light, every inch of the terrain.

Know the gray spaces and angles in which he lives in man, lives in boxes and dies in boxes.

That is why you are looking for a reconciliation with nature and returns to the basics, with forms such as the womb or a burrow.

For the architect the animal, vegetable and mineral world is a whole. Free forms and green areas, necessary.

His creations burst into the landscape, like an oasis, and offer a truce.

Try to generate the least environmental impact, seek harmony in every way.

This type of architecture Slips a fundamental point of reflection, it is the human who has to adapt to nature, not vice versa.

Mexican whale


The project is an underground house that if taken from an aerial view has the Figure of a whale.

Arose in 1995, with the remarkable characteristic of allowing curved spaces to be, as well as the capricious forms that already existed.

The facade has a stone slope reminiscent of pre-Hispanic buildings.

As well as a colorful stained glass window where natural light enters and causes an impressive visual effect depending on the time of day.

The Quetzalcoatl Nest


One of his most endearing and recognized projects, which saw the light in the 2008.

It's a complejo consisting of 10 departments, each with its own peculiarities and charm, minimalist design.
