Michael Graves
Upon Michael Graves’ passing in March, critics and commentators were quick to submit their favorite version of the architect-designer for dutiful tribute. These conflicting accounts varied in their degrees of generosity, but nevertheless gelled into a singular narrative. The young turk from Princeton (actually, Indiana) and artiest member of the New York Five was pitted against the indulgent Mannerist, then tragically deposed Postmodern father—only to be later redeemed by the thousands of products he designed for popular consumption.
