Graves to be recognized as 'Indiana Living Legend'

Graves, the Robert Schirmer Professor of Architecture Emeritus, will be recognized as an "Indiana Living Legend" by the Indiana Historical Society in ceremonies July 26.

Graves, who was born in Indianapolis, joined the Princeton faculty in 1962. Over the next four decades, he built an international reputation as an architect and designer. His designs, from office buildings to single-family homes, have been credited with introducing historical and contextual themes into modern architecture. His designs for furniture and household items, now sold in national retail stores, have helped bring a higher level of design to everyday objects.

Graves is a fellow of the American Institute of Architects, which awarded him its highest honor, the AIA Gold Medal, in 2001.
