A Life of BuildingStreaming Video - 2014
Once considered a maverick for challenging industry standards-and shunned by the American Institute of Architects-John Portman is now recognized as one of the most innovative and imitated architects of his time. With the Atlanta Hyatt Regency in 1967, Portman defied expectations and won international acclaim for his daring 22-story atrium. Portman's iconic urban statements and eye-popping interiors can be found in 60 cities across four continents. Best known for his urban mixed-use complexes, Portman infuses his designs with a deep understanding of people and our response to space. Two-time Emmy Award winning producer Ben Loeterman showcases Portman's breathtaking spaces in this intimate portrait.
