Described as "one of the most renowned and most polarizing architects" by The Washington Post, architect Michael Graves took the world by storm with his postmodern designs. From multi-colored schools to whistling bird teakettles, Graves designed anything and everything, creating a prolific body of work that totaled to over 350 buildings and over 2,000 products. After founding the architectural firm Michael Graves & Associates in 1964, he went on to design numerous works in Washington, D.C., including the multi-colored school St. Coletta of Greater Washington and the glowing scaffolding of the Washington Monument in 1999. For those who not only admire Graves' works, but wish to see them up close, here is a map of every building of his that can be found in Washington, D.C.
