The Nautilus, designer Javier Senosiain’s bizarre, snail-shaped dwelling, is a mind-bending union of artistic experimentation and simplified living. Inspired by the work of Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright, Senosiain has brought to Mexico City another sparkling example of what he calls “Bio-Architecture” — the idea that buildings based on the natural principles of organic forms bring us back to local history, tradition and cultural roots, in turn creating harmony with nature.

"Nautilus House" by Arquitectura Orgánica. Site: Source: http://www.beautifullife.info/urban-design/living-in-a-shell-nautilus-house/#ixzz1oitwGL6k. Built in 2006, this amazing house was conceived by a young couple with two children from Mexico City. After living in a conventional home, they wanted to change to one integrated with nature. The goal of the project was to make them feel like an internal inhabitant of a snail.
