Ridiculouser and ridiculouser


I’m sure some readers will think I’m getting tedious, but there seems to be no end to the asininity parading as architecture. The above abomination has been proposed for Queens. Will there ever be a time when real people find this so revolting that they … revolt? Here is the article at ny-curbed.com. Even they seem to perceive its absurdity. Don’t they have an opinion? Don’t they use their eyes? Their brains? Yes, I know, I’m getting monotonous. But so are these insults to everything human. Imagine having to live in Queens once that’s built. No, I cannot think it will be built. No, a thousand times no.

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.

    Looks like a starfish with a limb missing. Did you know that starfish have no blood, nor any brains…. Apt.
