 Of the architects who left the largest footprints on Pittsburgh in the early part of the 20th century, Frederick Scheibler is perhaps the least-well known. A native of the City, born into a German family that had a creative bent, Scheibler was fortunate to work at the moment when the architecture field was starting to turn away from the historical styles that had preoccupied it for decades.

As early as 1905, he demonstrated his ability to meld, in unique ways, early ideas about what would come to be called “functionalism” with an appreciation for decoration. He was, in the language of the time, a progressive; even today, his largely residential oeuvre stands out stylistically from the work of most of his contemporaries. This virtual tour will trace the evolution of Scheibler’s buildings, which one authority has described as a “startling presence on the landscape.”
