Pierluca Maffey and Gordon Beckman to co-chair Facades+AM Atlanta on January 16th, 2019
ATLANTA (December 17, 2018) — John Portman & Associates’ Pierluca Maffey and Gordon Beckman, will be co-chairing Facades+ Atlanta on January 16. The firm has completed dozens of projects in downtown Atlanta, such as the Marriot Marquis in Peachtree Center.
“John Portman & Associates, founded by the late John Portman in 1953, is the firm perhaps most synonymous with the city the firm has called home for over six decades. The firm, often cited for its soaring atria and forward-looking facades, has imprinted the Atlanta skyline with dozens of buildings, such as the 14-block Brutalist Peachtree Center. Ongoing projects within the city include the 21-story Anthem Technology Center clad in a dynamic perforated aluminum skin. Outside of the United States, the practice has established a significant presence in China, South Korea, and India, leading the design of sprawling complexes and urban master plans.”
