5.0 out of 5 stars Houston Treasure, April 13, 2005
This review is from: The Architecture of John F. Staub: Houston and the South (Hardcover)
As someone who grew up admiring Mr. Staubs talent, I am so thankful that Mr. Barnstone created this perfect book. It does a wonderful job of giving scholarly text and extensive photographs of the structures. The book leaves no doubt that Mr. Barnstone was a great admiror of this singular architect. The book gives floor plans as well has historical archival text on homes. He gives most weight and time to Mr. Staubs most famous building, most notable Bayou Bend. The reader marvels at Mr. Staubs command of different mediums and styles. His buildings, no matter how stylistically diffent, all have his touch of understated elegance. This book is a must have for anyone who admires great residental architecture. Mr. Staub was one of the great residental architects and Houston was lucky to call him her own.

This review is from: The Architecture of John F. Staub: Houston and the South (Hardcover)
This is a comprehensive and intelligent study of the work of John Staub, who designed many of the most notable structures in Houston (both domestic architecture and commercial structures). He designed an incredible number of buildings, and not only in Houston, but in other parts of the country. For a student of architecture, and for someone interested in the history of Houston, this book is a must.
