About Shawn M. Lutz
Shawn is the founder and director of SML/A; an independent practice focused on communities by designing housing, houses, objects, exhibitions, and interiors. The office engages and leverages the architectural surface to speculate on the near future. We examine the architectural discipline by notions of scale—from objects to buildings for renewed dialogues and philosophies.
Lutz has worked for several practices in Houston, New York, and Chicago on urban design, airports, commercial, residential, interior, and graphic design projects. Many projects are sited in North America and Asia, while others remain ongoing and conceptual.
Lutz is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Houston with a pedagogical ambition to engage contemporary discourses of both new and traditional tropes in architecture through modes of representation in drawing, image, and model to enrich the pedological and architectural intelligence that contributes to our society. Adjacent to practice, Lutz focuses on research with spatial diversity of geometry informing the architectural surface and surrounding environments. Once founded through internal mechanisms, an architectural character sees a renewal of the surface in societies beyond localities—glorifying diversity. Before joining the University of Houston faculty, Lutz held teaching positions at Texas A&M University.
Lutz received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Houston and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
