Subclip

Michael Graves presents a series of projects that have either been completed recently or that are currently in development: the renovation of a museum and offices at Emory University, an office building in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, an office and auction space for Sotheby’s in New York. Graves gives a more detailed explanation of his masterplan for Disney’s corporate headquarters in Burbank, California. Several other projects are shown, concluding with an overview of his proposed addition to Marcel Breuer’s Whitney Museum in New York. Graves discusses the controversy generated by his proposal, and discusses the role of historic preservation.
