Architectural Suppositions

Whether loved or loathed, the prolific work of postmodern architect Michael Graves became a platform for generations of discussions about design, both among architects and the public.

In 1988, Cooper Robertson partner John Kirk interviewed Michael Graves for Modulus, the Architectural Review of the University of Virginia. Then a lecturer at the University, John posed inquiries about the nature and meaning of cities, architectural language, and preservation to Graves, who was in the midst of the design of Bryan Hall at the University and the expansion of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
