Similar to his other designs in this collection, designer Michael Graves’ Witherspoon Navy holds true to the subtle composition notes of its predecessors, while paying homage to the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts at the intersection of Witherspoon St. and Paul Robeson Pl. The orange and blue color scheme alludes to the historic brass and brick building—and a not-so subtle nod to Princeton University where Graves taught for 40+ years. From the matching orange of the crown and second hand, to the navy face featuring large numbers with raised indexes in a silver color, every design note is carefully chosen to design one another for this nod to art and architecture.

MICHAEL GRAVES

AIA Gold medalist and founder of his namesake Michaels Graves Architecture & Design firm, Michael Graves was a noted American architect, product designer and educator, as well as a member of both, the New York Five—a group of innovative architects—and the Memphis Group—a pioneering postmodern design collective. Graves’ global portfolio includes work ranging from the Ministry of Culture in The Hague, an expansion of the Denver Public Library, numerous commissions for Disny and leading the scaffolding design for the 2000 Washington Monument restoration, to name a few. Having received the American Prize for Architecture, the National Medal of Arts and the Driehaus Architecture Prize, Graves has been recognized as a major influence on major architectural movements including New urbanism, New Classicism and Postmodernism as well as being described as “one of the most prominent and prolific American architects of the latter 20th century” by the New York Times.
