In Praise of Caves: Organic Architecture Projects from Mexico by Carlos Lazo, Mathias Goeritz, Juan O’Gorman, and Javier Senosiain

Noguchi Museum / New York / Art

Will humans one day go back to living in caves? It’s not such a wild question, considering the climate crisis and the desperate need for alternative forms of housing. “In Praise of Caves,” at the Noguchi Museum, explores the relationship between the natural and man-made dwellings that emerged in Mexico in the 1950s. Four artists—Carlos Lazo, Mathias Goeritz, Juan O’Gorman, and Javier Senosiain—present organic architecture projects in this multi-gallery exhibition. Prepare to leave the show wondering why humans stopped using natural structures as homes. —C.M.
