Architecture as Art is the only way to describe the work of American architect Michael Graves. Exhibiting a complexity that's head-scratchingly astounding, his buildings aimed to communicate with individuals, not classes. Greatly influences by the work of Le Corbusier and directly related to Cubist and Purist painting, he was also identified as one of The New York Five (alongside architects Peter Eisenman, Charles Gwathmey, John Hejduk and Richard Meier) as well as the Memphis Group. This title introduces and discusses the work of Graves with photographs and illustrated plans of selected buildings and projects.
