Unger & Loos


The materials in this collection reflect the individual and collective work of two of the modernist pioneer Adolf Loos’ close disciples, Paul Engelmann and Yehuda K. Unger, in connection with promoting his heritage in Palestine and beyond. The collection provides a unique insight into their architectural collaborations with Loos after their emigration to Palestine in the 1930s as well as their attempts to instill Loos’ concepts within the emerging local architectural community in the 1940s. Furthermore, it reveals the active contribution of these two individuals in shaping the historical knowledge about Loos in later decades. In addition, holdings include a small quantity of materials related to Unger and Engelmann’s individual professional careers as architects.
