Remembering Michael Graves

Hosted by

Earlier this month, postmodernist architect and designer Michael Graves died at age 80. His Portland Building was a game changer when it appeared in 1982, and since fell out of favor.

Then he partnered up with Target and Alessi and designed thousands of everyday products: everything from quirky kettles to dustpans.

But perhaps his greatest contribution to the field of design came after he became paralyzed and dedicated himself to designing wheelchairs, hospital furniture and homes for Wounded Warriors.

In memory of his contribution, we revisited a DnA interview in which he talked about that period of his life.
