Architect Michael Graves Rolls Out Houses For Injured Vets

New, 1 comment

Whether it's Shigeru Ban's shelters for earthquake victims or any number of other civic-minded projects, good things happen when good architects embrace good causes. Take Michael Graves, the man behind Dutch auto museums and really famous mass-produced tea kettles. The Princeton, N.J.-based architect has teamed with developer Clark Realty Capital on an initiative for the Wounded Warriors Home Project: a house for injured vets returning from tours of duty overseas. Slated for construction at Fort Belvoir military base in Virginia, Graves' prototype features wheelchair-accessible bathrooms, adjustable-height kitchen countertops, and easy-access rooms and closets, according to a release. See additional photos of the interior below.
