On Coalition Radio again

images-1Your roving correspondent has been asked to appear on WPRO’s Coaltion Radio once again this Saturday at 6 p.m. Also scheduled to appear is Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebian. Two weeks ago, in my first appearance on PRO (which you can hear through a link below), we discussed why architecture is important to Providence, and how Rhode Island could improve its economy on the cheap by embracing projects with building designs people love. You know, houses that look like houses, banks that look like banks, even stadia that look like stadia. That sort of thing.

Huh? I suppose Mayor Grebian will have something to say about that. “We wuz robbed!” is a perfectly reasonable complaint on the part of Pawtucket – though the city has not been robbed yet. Personally, if the Pawsox do move from Pawtucket to Providence, I think the name Pawsox should remain unchanged in homage to the Bucket.

Here are links to WPRO and Coalition Radio. The third link takes you to the Coalition website where you can click on Coalition #74 and hear my rant beginning at 34:00 minutes into the show:

About David Brussat

For a living, I edit the writing of some of the nation's leading architects, urbanists and design theorists. 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. My freelance writing and editing on that topic and others addresses issues of design and culture locally and globally. I am a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts, and 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 invest your prose with even more style and clarity, 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.
