John Portman : a life of building( Visual )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From PBS: JOHN PORTMAN: A LIFE OF BUILDING examines the work and legacy of one of the world's most daring and influential architects. Over the last 45 years, John Portman's iconic urban structures and eye-popping interiors steadily rose in 60 cities across four continents, helping redefine cityscapes in the United States and skylines in Asia. Once considered a maverick because he eschewed long-accepted industry standards, critics and leading architecture schools now fully embrace Portman's design approach, which emphasizes function, purpose and sensory experience. JOHN PORTMAN: A LIFE OF BUILDING showcases Portman's buildings using dramatic time-lapse footage. The film also features interviews with Portman, architecture critic Paul Goldberg (The New Yorker), Harvard professors Mack Scogin and Michael Hays, business associates Mickey Steinberg and A.J. Robinson, architect Jacque Robertson, art critic Robert Craig and Portman's children

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Portman is an architect and artist whose influence has reshaped the skyline of cities internationally, particularly that of his hometown, Atlanta. His architectural firm was established in 1953, and the 800-room Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, which opened in 1967, introduced the world's first modern atrium hotel, a model which radically changed the industry. In the 1980s, Portman began painting and creating sculptures that are on view in his buildings and homes. The October 2009 exhibition at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta features Portman's fine art as well as projects from throughout his career." "John Portman: Art and Architecture, including essays by eminent architecture critics Paul Goldberger and Robert M. Craig, considers selected architectural and development projects, from early works in the 1950s and 1960s, including the Peachtree Center complex, to landmark hotels throughout the world, to vast mixed-use developments that sparked the rejuvenation of major cities (Embarcadero Center in San Francisco, Shanghai Centre in Shanghai, and Marina Square in Singapore), to exciting recent buildings in Korea and China"--

A devout Catholic priest freelances as a private investigator in rural England during the 1920s.

His kindly eyes pick up clues that professionals usually miss, and his keen understanding of human nature lets him search men's souls for motives
Form : John Portman by John Portman( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Internationally recognised as an architect, real estate developer and entrepreneur, John Portman's personal commitment to the integration of art and architecture was evident from the start. His first commission was the renovation of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Building on which he envisioned affixing a contemporary metal sculpture to an eagle. The client liked the idea, but was unwilling to finance the art. So Portman invested his own money for the sculpture and, thus, began incorporating art as an integral part of his work, including designing lighting fixtures, hardware, and furniture, and eventually channelling his creativity into painting and sculpture. His interests - the love of nature, the merging of opposite forces, the study of human responses - are as central to Portman's artwork as they are to his architecture
