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 in1967, Portman defied expectations and won international acclaim for his daring 22-story atrium. Portman's iconic urban statements and eye-popping interiors have since graced 60 cities across four continents, redefining cityscapes such as Times Square in New York, Embarcadero Center in San Francisco, and skylines in Shanghai and Beijing. Best known for his urban mixed-use complexes, Portman's designs reveal 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, which captures his philosophy, entrepreneurial spirit, and bold approach.
