Publisher Comments:

Javier Senosiain¹s architecture is always a discovery and, undoubtedly, a surprise that causes intrigue and certain restlessness; it is full of questions particularly for those of us who were formed on the functional rational school where, it should be said, he was formed with us. The questions are accumulated when opening this book of his work as it happened when reading his book of bioarchitecture.

In the integral and modern Mexican architecture society, these unusual gestures are not so frequent and, since the appearance of the above mentioned works, a growing surprise has accompanied the architectonic production of Javier, although with a silent expectation as the intellectual society is used to. The next definite step was taken on 1985, as it is extensively documented in this book, with ³The Organic House², whose search is not only in the sense of the organic form but also on experimentation with the construction procedures that make it architectonically possible; on this matter, the photographs of the innovative processes are eloquent with which Javier and his group of real construction pottery makers carried out the organic houses of their maturity.

Synopsis:

Javier Senosiain’s architecture is always a discovery and a surprise. This book looks at Senosiain’s mind-blowing “bio-architecture,” from his 1985 Organic House, with its sinuous curves and peanut-inspired form, to his 2005 Quetzalcoatl Nest, built to curve serpentlike down the sloping side of a ravine without disturbing any of the existing trees and natural growth. These projects, as well as The Serpent, The Shark, The Whale, Casa Flor, Satellite Complex, The Kiss, The Nautilus, and others, are fully explored and documented, often with step-by-step photographs of the construction process.
