Description
Designed by Michael Graves, the library has received a prestigious honor award from the American Institute of Architects, and has been called "the first authentic postmodern masterpiece" by Newsweek magazine. -- http://www.sanjuancapistrano.org/index.aspx?page=454 In this small one-story building (about 12,000 square feet) Graves borrows from the local Spanish idiom, using stucco walls, mission clay roof tiles, wooden beams, mini-towers, small punched windows, light monitors, stencil ornament, and loggias around a central courtyard. -- http://www.bluffton.edu/~sullivanm/gravessjc/gravessjc.html
