Graves, Michael (American architect, born 1934)

Note: American architect known for his eclectic, playful approach to building. His early work builds on the formalist elements of Le Corbusier, but he also added colored architectural elements. By the mid-1970s, his work became increasingly classical and historicist in nature, borrowing from Ledoux, Boullée, Ingres, Poussin, and Classical Greece and Rome. American architect, Princeton, N.J.
