Michael Graves has been part of the architectural scene since the 1980s, and he is noted as one of the leaders of the post-modern movement. This book looks at the Graves Residence, designed and lived in by the architect. The residence has its roots in a classically-based architecture and is more restrained than the visually extravagant work associated with Graves's projects of the early 1980s. Located in a street in Princeton, New Jersey, a town dominated by the University, the building is L-shaped in plan. It has a clearly expressed entrance formed by an angle between the two wings of the house, which provides an "inside-out" zone between the house and formally arranged garden. Inside, much of the furniture as well as the fittings have been designed by Graves himself, and these, together with his collection of neoclassical furniture, varied artefacts and art works, all contribute to a work that represents one of his most complete architectural statements, embodying many of the themes expressed in his more recent work.
