2013 Legend_04 Legend13_04.jpg The Portland Building in Portland, Oregon, was a significant departure from modern office building design when completed in 1982, and it brought Graves’s postmodern design aesthetic to the public in a significant way.

2013 Legend_13 Legend13_13.jpg Wheelchair-bound for the past decade, Graves is acutely aware of mobility challenges for disabled persons in conventional interiors.

The homes allow for easy accessibility, whether one is in a wheelchair or has other mobility challenges.
