Read about the legacy of John Portman (1924-2017) in Architect Magazine in his obituary “Atlanta Architect John Portman Dies at 93.”

Last October the GSD’s Dean Mohsen Mostafavi sat down with Metropolis Magazine and Mr. Portman’s son, Jack MArch ’73, to discuss the architect’s impact and the 2017 book “Portman’s America & Other Speculations” (Harvard University GSD and Lars Müller Publishers), edited by Mostafavi.
