Early life and career
Born in 1886 in Uman in the Ukraine, Magidovitch studied in Odessa. In 1919 migrated to Israel and soon became the chief engineer of Tel Aviv. In 1923 he established his own design and construction company. In 1934 his son Raphael also joined the office.
His 1920s buildings were in eclectic style, but starting from the early 1930s Magidovitch started moving towards Art Deco. His first International style designs from 1934 retained a personal artistic expression.
Magidovich died in 1961 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
