To survey the work of Mexican architect Javier Senosiain (born 1948) requires a journey through a particular trajectory in the history of architecture, from Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruno Zevi to Alvar Aalto, Eero Saarinen and Jørn Utzon. These pioneers of organic modernism faced the 20th century's mechanistic, functionalistic and rationalistic proposals with a vision that sought to revive an organic relationship between humans and their environments.

Senosiain's concept of “Organic Architecture” follows in this tradition. Throughout his career, Senosiain's work has explored the relations between user, site and architecture in spaces that echo natural forms and conditions. “The concept of an organic habitat,” he writes, “is the creation of spaces adapted to man that are also similar to a mother's bosom or an animal's lair.” This volume surveys Senosiain's work since the 1970s and his concept of “Organic Architecture.”
