Michael Graves Profiled

Fast Company profiles architect and designer Michael Graves on his greatest desgin -- his company.

"Much like Tom Sawyer's delicious glimpse of his own funeral, Graves's near-death experience has given him something few of us are afforded: a first-hand taste of his own legacy. If he ever doubted it before, he must know now that he is a seminal figure in architecture and design, and that his career stands as a testament to the value of a lifetime well spent on good work. But the catastrophic events of the past year have revealed an even more remarkable achievement. Graves has built something larger and more enduring than himself -- a team that will carry on his life's work without him."
