Pittsburgh Rodef Shalom Temple

Pittsburgh Rodef Shalom Temple

Rodef Shalom, a Reform congregation, is the oldest extant Jewish congregation in Pittsburgh, chartered in 1854. The temple was completed in 1907. Hornbostel's design for Rodef Shalom -- a magnificent domed auditorium, massive roof, and imposing entrance gable -- gives an impressive feeling of shelter and permanence. Judaic symbols are molded in terra cotta: a menorah is centered over the doorway; blank tablets suggesting the Ten Commandments are above the entrance arch; and Stars of David are incorporated in the terra-cotta work at the rooftop. The terra cotta, glazed in cream, green and pink, is one of the first uses of polychrome terra cotta in the United States. The menorah, molded out of terra cotta (baked clay), is electrified and can be lit. The chamfered corner softens the edge of the building and creates a transition between the mass of the wall and the hip roof. Rodef Shalom Temple

Hornbostel designed a quietly sumptuous interior of mahogany and gilt, focused on an Ark framed by four stout Ionic columns. The branches of the chandeliers are formed as menorahs. The stained glass in the sanctuary was designed by William Willet. The octagonal skylight of the interior Guastavino dome is framed by light bulbs. Rodef Shalom Temple

Allegheny Courthouse

Allegheny Courthouse
Architect: Henry Hobson Richardson
Romanesque

The architect's unique Romanesque aesthetic is epitomized in the Allegheny Courthouse and Boston's Trinity Church; these exemplify what other architects picked up as the Richardsonian Romanesque style. Richardsonian Romanesque churches (not designed, but inspired by Richardson) include Pittsburgh's own Christ Methodist Church (on Center Ave) and Shadyside Presbyterian Church (on American Ave).
