Alexander Klein

June 17, 1879 in Odessa, Ukraine
June 15, 1961 in New York City, USA

After working as a city planning officer in St. Petersburg, Russia, he had to flee because of Jewish pogroms in 1920. He went to Berlin where he supported the idea of minimum dwelling. His main project was to design apartments without hallways.

Because of his Jewish origins he was banned from his profession from 1933 and went to Palestine. Although it is written that he erected buildings there, these are never named.
