Michael Graves came to the limelight in the international architectural scene during the 1960's as part of the group known as the 'New York Five'. From the mid 1970's, having abandoned his interest in the origins of the Modern Movement, he started developing a highly personal eclecticism based on the ironic reinterpretation of the shapes of traditional architecture and on the emphatic use of colors, thus becoming one of the top exponents of the post modern movement.
