A monograph on John Portman that explores the intimate relationship of the
man, his architecture and his art Internationally recognized as an architect,
real estate developer and entrepreneur, John Portman's 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 to an eagle. The
client liked the idea, but was unwilling to finance the art. Portman invested
his own money for the sculpture and, thus, began incorporating art as an
integral part of his work, including designing lighting fixtures, hardware, and
furniture, and eventually channeling 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 Portman's artwork as they are
to his architecture.
