Javier Senosiain

Javier Senosiain is a Mexican architect celebrated as a key exponent and explorer of so-called organic architecture.

The work some have likened to that of Frank Lloyd Wright, Bruce Goff, Soleri, Hundertwasser, Gaudi and Rudolf Steiner and the nature and the Mexican Popular Art. He is currently a professor of architecture at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).

Javier Senosiain's architectural creations have attracted both comment and controversy. A house at Vista del Valle, north of Mexico City sits on a hill overlooking the city and is designed in the shape of a shark. It is a ferro-concrete construction coated with polyurethane and UV-resistant elastomeric waterproofing. Inside it comprises a complex labyrinth of rooms and interconnecting carpeted tunnels.
