John Portman

  • Internationally recognised as an architect, real estate developer and entrepreneur, John Portmans 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 of an eagle. The client liked the idea but was unwilling to finance the art, so Portman invested his own money for the sculpture thus, he 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 Portmans artwork as they are to his architecture.

    This book explores the intimate relationship of the manto, his architecture and his art.
