Michael Graves

American architect Michael Graves founded his practice in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1964. Since the early 1980s, his work directly influenced the transformation of urban architecture from the abstraction of commercial modernism toward an interest in context. Graves has dubbed himself "a general practitioner," designing not only the interiors for the majority of his projects, but also a wide range of furnishings and products, from furniture and lighting fixtures to jewelry and dinnerware.

Take a look at some of the late architect's greatest hits here.
