while the first Entelechy is a very interesting midcentury residence, the second one built in 1986 is one of the craziest houses I've ever seen (right there with those of John Lautner, or Bruce Goff, or Bart Prince or to make a maybe a bit more apt comparison, with the Bass residence of Paul Rudolph)

I am so glad someone else knows about this building! It seems like so few people have heard of Portman or his works.

Beside being an architecture lover I'm a huge plant/greenery/flowers lover, so that building has both the architecture and the greenery, it's like the perfect, or dream house. I love the contrast between the white walls of the structure and the greenery of all those hanging plants, truly magnificent. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, I'm sure that there many here who know his work.
And since we're in the topic of the amazing buildings, few things can compete in sheer spectacularity with the atrium of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis (probably already posted, but...)
