Winner of the 2001 AIA Gold Medal, he has been the Lead Planner/Designer for a variety of master planning and design projects around the world. Drawings of Mr. Graves are frequently put on exhibit, and are published in books and periodicals around the world.

Mr. Graves founded Michael Graves & Associates in 1964, and remains the firm’s Founding Principal. The New York Times described Mr. Graves as “the most truly original voice that American architecture has produced for some time.” His work has directly influenced the transformation of urban architecture from the abstractions of modern architecture toward more contextual and traditional compositions. In his projects, Mr. Graves has consistently demonstrated his ability to create designs sym- pathetic to both the general program of use and the context of the site. Joining the Princeton University faculty in 1962, Mr. Graves established his architectural practice two years later. Devoting himself ever since to both the practice and also teaching of architecture, he retired from Princeton University in 2001 after 39 years with the University and is currently the Schirmer Professor of Architecture Emeritus.
