We have previously written about one of the extremely unique projects of Javier Senosiain, but there are many other inspiring realisations of the Mexican architect that are worth putting in the spotlight.
Javier Senosiain's organic architecture is exactly the dose of optimism and creativity we want to see nowadays. He does not allow himself to be limited by the standard principles of housing construction and has already created many special residences that stand out especially in terms of form and use of colour.
Organic architecture puts the human body centre stage
In addition, the designs always take into account their natural surroundings, even more so: they seem to originate from nature. For the external design, the architect is therefore clearly inspired by the fauna and flora, of which the houses and other buildings in the shape of a snake, a whale, a flower or even a mushroom are the most remarkable examples. As a result, there is a unique dynamic in the realisations, which has a positive influence on the well-being of the residents. Senosiain has already published two books on his particular view of architecture under the titles Bio Architecture and Organic Architecture, in which he explains, among other things, how he wants to bring mankind as close to nature as possible. It is not just an organic architecture, but also a more human one. “A house should adapt to the human body, just as animals make their shelters adapted to their bodies and their needs," Senosiain once said.
Houses with a positive influence on the well-being of the residents
Certainly now that we are much more at home than ever we can agree with that idea. It's also just very refreshing to see how someone can give free rein to their creativity and design truly unique things that - whether you really like it or not, because opinions are quite divided - can be an inspiration to many.
