La Serpiente - The Snake (Naucalpan/ Mexico)

This fantastic snake-shaped structure is an apartment building designed by Javier Senosiain, a Mexican architect celebrated as a key exponent and explorer of "organic architecture".
The land it was constructed upon proved to be both, a challenge and an inspiration for the architect. He included the irregular shapes and caves in the design - the biggest cave got transformed into a giant serpent's head inspired by Aztec snake god Quetzalcoatl.

He is also the architect behind these extraordinary buildings: The Nautilus House, The Flower House , Ballena Mexicana & La Casa Organica.
