Shallow Graves


If we haven't heard much from Michael Graves recently, the American architect who is one of the last torchbearers of PostModernism, don't imagine he hasn't been busy. He has been designing a range of pavilions for America's Target stores, which are a kind of cross between Marks & Spencer and Ikea. In a vaguely neo-colonial idiom, they are available in three styles - Heathcote, Brighton and Sherwood. Sherwood is woody, Brighton has faint echoes of Prinny's pavilion and Heathcote is, well, nondescript. If you go to www. target. com and don't find these exactly to your taste, do not despair, you can download Flash and set about customising your own pavilion.
