summary
Frederick G. Scheibler, Jr. (1872-1958) was the rare turn-of-the-century American architecht who looked to progressive movements such as Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement for inspiration. Scheibler envisioned each building as a work of art, integrating architecture and ornamentation. Prized today, Scheibler’s best works are scattered through Pittsburgh’s East End and easter suburbs. This richly illustrated volume, the first comprehensive study of Scheibler, includes 125 historic and contemporary photographs and drawings, of Scheibler’s known projects - including many not recorded in any other published source - a list of books in Scheibler’s library, and a selected bibliography. Martin Aurand discusses Scheibler’s life and career, the influences on his architectural concepts, his artistic sensibility and tastes, and his lasting significance.
