Gone fishing, be back soon

I must announce that my operation has been postponed, possibly to January. I’m of two minds about this, but I will treat it as a boon (nobody is eager for open-heart surgery). I appreciate all the good wishes, and encourage everyone to postpone them, too – though not to postpone sending me examples of new trad buildings for my 2019 “best of” post.

Architecture Here and There

Those who have wished me the best* have my heartfelt thanks, but please, let us not forget what I was really fishing for – examples of new traditional architecture completed during this past year of 2019. As a reminder, I link here to my “Best traditional buildings” post from last year. I hope we can improve upon that in 2019. Europeans and readers from other continents may feel free to nominate new buildings from your own special corners of the world. While all of these splendid suggestions are rolling into my in-box, I expect to put up some “favorites” from blog posts of yesteryear. Enjoy! I will be back to normal posting in a week or so, and I hope that will include a post exhibiting a robust collection of traditional buildings that opened this year.

* My heart surgery is Tuesday morning.

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.
