Klaustoon on Koolhaas and penises


Here are two more cartoons, which I happened upon while researching the relationship of Walter Gropius and Joseph Hudnut at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design for Thursday’s column, which I must write tomorrow morning. More cartoons by Klaus are at the cartoonist’s blog, Klaustoon, which has a serious case of blogorrhea, which I am sure I would enjoy if I had more time right now. I have not been able to track down the artist’s actual name.

The first cartoon, on top, is about Rem Koolhaas and his egomania, specifically in regard to talking about his leadership of this year’s Venice Biennale. The second, below, is a rumination on various buildings and designs of late that have taken a salacious turn. Enjoy!


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, dbrussat@gmail.com, 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.
