Modern “shouses” have evolved from an architectural theory called Functionalism which emerged in the early 20th century.  The movement was fostered by architect Louis Sullivan, a mentor of Frank Lloyd Wright.  Sullivan believed the deign of any structure should be drivn by that building’s purpose – its intended use.  Following that functional design approach, current shouses come in all shapes and sizes, but the one featured in this issue of L•O PROFILE is undoubtedly in a class all its own.
