THE ARHITECTURES OF THE HISTADRUT

The Leitersdorf and Belzitsman Architects firm was trusted with the planning of dozens of buildings for the Worker’s Council (Histadrut), its facilities, extensions and various branches.

The intensity of the relations between the firm and the client was expressed in the wide range of projects – from planning the central public buildings in the cities and settlements, to the renovation of local culture halls.

The story of these buildings is the story of the institution, which was the significant source of power in the years before the establishment of Israel, as well as its first few decades. From its pivotal part in the daily lives of the workers, local politics in the cities, settlements and development towns, to its financial and moral bankruptcy, shown by the neglected buildings, if there are any left.
