Abstract:

"This monograph traces the evolution of an architectural practice: from the design concepts explored in John Portman's own homes, Entelechy I and II, through to the firm's explorations of the possibilities for the atrium on a massive scale and its pioneering involvement in mixed-use developments. John Portman & Associates has arguably moved modern architecture to a new awareness of spatial possibilities and its legacy is the concrete expression of its founder's guiding ethos: 'Great art in perfect harmony - architecture, sculpture, painting, music, philosophy - is the way to the greatest salvation man can have on this earth'."--BOOK JACKET.
