Who better to design an architect mailbox or “House” for your mail than those who design your house!

Icons of 20th century architecture created mailboxes in 1990.  Participating designers included:  Michael Graves, Stanley Tigerman and Robert Venturi.  These mailboxes were unique in their approach and made of steel and USPS approved.

The original concept of this program was “America”.  Products designed by American architects and made in the U.S.S.

If you are lucky enough to own one of these architect mailboxes today, you have a collector’s item representative of the 90s.

These mailboxes have been out of production since 1991.  One has become available from a Collector.

Michael Graves

Michael Graves received his architectural training at the University of Cincinnati and at Harvard University. Among his many completed projects are the Portland Building, the Humana Building, the Clos Pegase Winery in the Napa Valley, and the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels. Graves is the winner of fifteen Progressive Architecture Design Awards, nine American Institute of Architects National Honor Awards, and thirty-eight New Jersey Society of Architects, AIA Awards. Michael Graves was recently awarded the national medal of the arts. Here is a transcript of what President Clinton said at the ceremony: So it's little wonder that Michael Graves' work can be found from our shopping malls to our National Mall. From an award-winning office building to a tea kettle; to the creative scaffolding around the Washington Monument -- which, I might say, has enriched the lives of every person in Washington, D.C. -- (applause) - - and made those often stuck in what is now America's most crowded traffic patterned city have their time pass a little better, Michael Graves has created art that surrounds our lives.

Michael Graves is a rare individual who finds equal wonder in things both large and small. As one of our century's most important designers and architects, he has said he gets as much pleasure planning a large building as he does designing a spatula. (Laughter.)- THE PRESIDENT
He calls himself a great practitioner, but in some ways his challenge is more daunting than that of a physician. As Frank Lloyd Wright once said, "After all, the doctor can bury his mistake," -- (laughter) -- "but the architect can only advise his client to plant vines." (Laughter.) The only thing that grows and covers Michael Graves' work is our admiration, appreciation and respect." Read about Michael Graves here: Buildings and Projects 1990-1994
