Among the well-known buildings he designed are the "Binyenei HaUma" (Buildings of the Nation) in Jerusalem, and the Heichal HaTarbut (the Hall of Culture) building (together with Dov Karmi) and the Helena Rubinstein Museum of Contemporary Art, both in the HaTarbut Square in Tel Aviv .

One of the founders of the "Hug group of architects" (together with Yisrael Dicker, Joseph Neufeld and Arieh Sharon) a group that in the 1930s promoted the professional architectural conversation in Israel.
