Altoon & Porter Architects (Master Architect)
Founded in 1984 by Ronald Altoon and James Porter, Altoon + Porter has sustained its growth through all economic cycles with a clear adherence to its core values. Commitment to respond to context, to create community and to serve its client's investment or institutional goals has resulted in a significant portfolio. Projects vary widely, and include mixed-use, retail, office, institutional and transit-related. Altoon + Porter's work is informed by a design philosophy that respects context and culture, and applies the traditional structural order. The firm actively seeks to expand its role beyond the domain of practice into civic, academic and cultural realms; such outreach is deeply ingraiend in its culture. This monograph presents Altoon + Porter's most important works, in full colour photographs, drawings and informative text.
