'Atrium' - Vincent Korda


A multi-storey atrium model from the 1936 film 'Things to Come' -- an atrium prefigured by the likes of Frank Loyd Wright's Larkin Building and Rogers Lacy Hotel project, and brought to reality again four decades after Korda in the multi-storey atria of John Portman.

I've said many times that Wikipedia for controversial topics should always be considered off-limits in polite company.

AFAIA John Portman is hardly considered controversial, except by those who can't read?

Ah I see - refer to Wiki articles when you like and agree with the subject, but make it "off-limits" when the content of the article doesn't suit your purpose.

As long as we've got that clear ...
