title Entelechy I - Towards a Formal Specification of John Portman's Domestic Architecture
source Martens, B, Wurzer, G, Grasl T, Lorenz, WE and Schaffranek, R (eds.), Real Time - Proceedings of the 33rd eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, 16-18 September 2015, pp. 445-452

summary John Portman's work attracts much interest, although little scholarship exists that directly engages his contribution in formal composition. Most of the discussion of Portman's architecture tends to focus on his commercial work and hotels, although a key to understanding his work is found in his personal domestic projects where he has had the freedom to explore his architectural ideas. This study focuses on his first residence, Entelechy I, to begin outlining his design principles formally. The ambition is to open up the whole question of his architectural contribution in the United States and at large.
