Max Loeb


The materials in this collection (5 boxes) reflect the activities of Max Loeb (Lev) (Kassel 1901-Haifa 1962), a German-émigré Israeli modernist architect. Holdings include materials concerning Lev’s diverse architectural commissions in Palestine/Israel spanning from the late 1920s until his death in 1962. The collection contains textual and architectural materials, in addition to photograph albums and a large collection of photographs documenting his projects. The collection provides a unique insight into the rich architectural oeuvre of arguably one of the leading exponents of Modern architectural style in Mandate Palestine, who seems to have been left out of the scholarly canon of early statehood Jewish modernist architects in Israel.
