An internationally recognized architect, developer, and entrepreneur, John Portman's personal commitment to the integration of art and architecture was evident from the start of his career. 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, since then incorporating art as an integral part of his work. This beautiful book surveys his work in captionless, page-filling color photographs-up to 22 x 13 inches-capturing the sculptural qualities of his buildings and the artworks he has installed, including his own.
