Benjamin Horace Weese (born September 20, 1929) is an American architect. He worked in Chicago. Weese was a member of the architects group, the Chicago Seven. Weese is the younger brother of Chicago architect Harry Weese.

His works were urban renewal and subsidized housing projects. In the late 1970s, he was a member of the Chicago Seven, a group which criticized modernism-style architecture and the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

In 1977, Weese opened his own firm, Weese Seegers Hickey Weese. This turned out to be an award-winning firm, later becoming Weese Langley Weese, and was best known for non-profit and educational projects with an emphasis on historical appreciation and preservation.
