Architect Michael Graves to speak, April 22
Posted April 19, 2002; 10:17 a.m.
Architect Michael Graves will present a lecture titled "Telling Stories" at 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 22, in McCosh 10.
Graves, the Robert Schirmer Professor of Architecture Emeritus, 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. His talk is designated as a Stafford Little Lecture and is part of the University's Public Lectures Series. It will be Webcast live on this site.
