Henry Reed’s Philadelphia II

DSCN4098Here are more shots from Philadelphia, not all of which will be strictly to the taste of Henry Hope Reed, the honoree of a symposium held at the Franklin Inn Club there on Saturday. The photo above shows the late Henry Reed in the laurel wreath, hanging on the wall. Panelists Alvin Holm, Francis Morrone, Seth Weine (moderator, beneath bewreathed photo of HHR), Catesby Leigh and Milton Grenfell mull HHR’s legacy. Savvy readers might find the decor in the photo of the club room useful to deduce which of the photos below – no kibitzing, Philadelphians! – depicts the exterior of the club, on South Camac Street in the Center City. Ruminations on the symposium’s content coming up soon.

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.
