Javier Senosiain, a Mexican architect and author of the “Bio-Architecture” book. He is known for his colourful organic architecture inspired by FriedensreichHundertwasser. The architectural style is a reflection of the colourful Mexican art. It remodels the aspects of the human form. Organic architecture is the harmonization of humans and the environment. 

Javier approaches his design in a surreal way. All his work is colourful with the eyes that interest one to know more about the project. He blends in nature with all of his works that play a major role in the current century. Moreover, in his literal design, he adds his twist with designing the integrated furniture that suits each of his buildings.

Below is the list of 15 Projects by Javier Senosiain:

1) The Organic House

Location: Mexico

An idea that evolved from a peanut shell. A concept that revolves around the experience of the person: the perception of one day and one night. The exterior greenery creates a unique integration between the living space and the exterior garden. The interior volume is designed in a way that when you walk on the grass you are walking on the roof of the house.
