Albert W. Sullivan House (demolished) formerly at 4575 Lake Park Avenue, Chicago, IL Cervin Robinson, Photographer: August, 1963 house designed by Louis Sullivan. from Historic American Buildings Survey at the Library of Congress.

My but Lincoln Park is bright enen on this dreary Spring day! I encountered this pretty California style paint job on the building between appointments today. Not sure what business it is. In the days of Louis Sullivan buildings were designed to illustrate what was inside (think Chrysler Building or Bank buildings). So given that what does THIS building hold do you think? #louissullivan #paintstyle #chicagoarchitecture

Function Follows Form Follows Function Follows.

Struggling to put a pin on the exact function of my design. Returning to ideas of Permaculture (the drip, an unintentional natural input) I can see that this could well lead me through the design process and that the function of my space will become clearer.
