About David Brussat

This blog was begun in 2009 as a feature of the Providence Journal, where I was on the editorial board and wrote a weekly column of architecture criticism for three decades. Architecture Here and There fights the style wars for classical architecture and against modern architecture, no holds barred. History Press asked me to write and in August 2017 published my first book, "Lost Providence." I am now writing my second book. My freelance writing on architecture and other topics addresses issues of design and culture locally and globally. I am a member of the board of the New England chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, which bestowed an Arthur Ross Award on me in 2002. I work from Providence, R.I., where I live with my wife Victoria, my son Billy and our cat Gato. If you would like to employ my writing and editing to improve your work, please email me at my consultancy,, or call 401.351.0457. Testimonial: "Your work is so wonderful - you now enter my mind and write what I would have written." - Nikos Salingaros, mathematician at the University of Texas, architectural theorist and author of many books.

  1. I visited that building two years ago, Barry, and the cartoonist is right. At least most buildings in Vegas are (or were!) based on some precedent. The Venetian is actually quite an elegant repro, though of course very far from matching its precedent. The Ruvo Brain Center, Gehry’s Vegas monstrosity, is supposed to be about brain research and treatment for people with mental illness. The building seems to mock their troubled minds. That is not nice.

    Good cartoon, but Las Vegas should really get a pass form architectural critics as a one of a kind place where anything over the top goes, the more outrageous the better.
