Donald Miller writes about architecture for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Benno Janssen was one of those unfortunate architects in the twentieth century who found his clientele among wealthy and socially prominent clients. It is unfortunate primarily because it has been popular for too long to denigrate such architects for their political incorrectness (starchy white male architects working for dull white male tycoons in Revivalist architectural styles).

Here for the first time is an in-depth presentation of the ideas and design of Benno Janssen, whose elegant architecture greatly enriched the landscape of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs by Edward Massery, this book is a handsome and insightful tribute to one of Pittsburgh most highly regarded architects. Format Hardback 192 pages.

Benno Janssen was one of the twentieth century's most celebrated architects. Known as "the Mellon's architect," at the behest of R. B. Mellon he created many of the most memorable sporting structures at the Rolling Rock Hunt Club in Ligonier, Pennsylvania, as well as the Mellon Institute in Pittsburgh. A beautiful coffee table presentation.

Benno Janssen was one of those unfortunate architects in the twentieth century who found his clientele among wealthy and socially prominent clients. It is unfortunate primarily because it has been popular for too long to denigrate such architects for their political incorrectness (starchy white male architects working for dull white male tycoons in Revivalist architectural styles). All of these factors have been used to dismiss such individuals as a class having no intellect or creativity.

It is true that not all architects, regardless of clientele or stylistic preferences, are brilliant and creative. In fact, relatively few really are. Janssen was one who was. It is finally time that he has been rescued from the architectural dustbin and given his due in this splendid book.

Mr. Miller has done superlative research, uncovering all of the salient projects from the career of an extremely prolific architect affiliated with a variety of firms. The color photography is excellent and the text highly informative and well-written

The book is great in cataloguing the builldings, style and architecture Benno created in and around Pittsburgh. The old world style gives a feeling of permanance to his buildings. Miller did a excellent job in picking the significant Projects of Benno's and showcasing them. I enjoy this book.

Anyone who has experienced a Benno Janssen designed property understands the beauty, majesty and uniqueness of his style. His use of the natural resources of Western Pennsylvania and a style of combining high roofs and archways create an Eastern European look. He is truely one of our country's greatest architects. I recommend this book for anyone who appreciates great architecture, especially when it utilizes the surrounding landscape.
