Hardcover. 145 pages. 1995 edition.  

Graves is primarily known as a leading exponent of post-modern architecture. He has not only executed numerous buildings, but has also designed furniture, ceramics, textiles, carpets and so forth. However, there are no books devoted to the design oeuvre of Graves whom the New York Times has called "...the most truly original voice that American architecture has produced in some time." Our book is meant to fill the gap. It consists of essays written by the well-known authors listed above and an introduction by Aldo Rossi, the great contemporary architect.

The textual and visual emphasis is on Graves's product designs which he has made for companies such as Alessi, Vorwerk and Disney. Illustrations of his work include photographs, sketches and drawings. Comments provided by his clients, friends and also prominent contemporaries in the art and architectural world are interspersed throughout the volume. An exclusive interview is conducted with Graves by the editors. This is included in a special section which is designed by the architect himself or by members of his office.
