Interior Urbanism: Exploring John Portman’s Hotel Atriums, Office Complexes & Sky Bridges

We will explore the hotels, office plazas and sky bridges that put Atlanta on the architectural map. Join us for a tour of select Downtown Atlanta buildings designed by architect-developer John Portman. Led by Portman aficionado Dennis Lovello, the tour includes unique offices, vibrant public spaces and the ground-breaking atrium design of the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Guests will also tour the innovative designs of the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel and Sun Trust Plaza.
