First architect elected into New Jersey Hall of Fame

The New Jersey Hall of Fame (NJHOF) has elected architect Michael Graves, FAIA, of Princeton, N.J., to its Class of 2010. Graves’ nomination was championed by the New Jersey chapter of the American Institute of Architects (NJ-AIA). Graves, the first architect to be nominated, was elected in the Hall of Fame’s 'Enterprise' category.

“We are thrilled that Michael Graves has been elected to the New Jersey Hall of Fame,” said Stacey Ruhle Kliesch, AIA, LEED AP president of AIA-NJ. “The architecture community doesn’t often get the recognition it deserves, as the designers of the places we live, work and play. This prestigious honour will bring attention not only to his accomplishments, but to those of the profession.”

Graves has been at the forefront of architectural design since he founded his practice in Princeton in 1964. He is an influential theorist, as well as a diversified and prolific designer and an esteemed educator. Graves’ architectural practice has designed over 350 buildings worldwide encompassing many building types. Since the early 1980s, his work has directly influenced the transformation of architecture from the preoccupation with buildings that reflect the abstraction of commercial modernism to those that display sensitivity to geographical, architectural and historical context.
