Lev's works are known for their prolific use of sustainable, natural or near-raw construction materials and construction methods (Gulgong Holtermann Museum, Courtyard House, Angkor School campus, River Retreat cabin) such as locally sourced timber, rammed earth, stone, hempcrete, canite or clay and lime renders. He teaches sustainable and ethical architecture in lectures and workshops.
Lev is the founder of ArchiCamp, an annual grassroots gathering of Australian and international architects and architecture students, which first introduced the concept of loosely organised, guerilla style architect gatherings, directly assisting local communities that host them.
Lev was born in Czech Republic, then part of Czechoslovakia, to parents Jiri Loew, Czech architect and academic and Lydie Loewova, architect. He was educated at Mathias Lerch Grammar School. Then he commenced studies at Brno University of Technology and worked briefly at his father's firm. He moved to Sydney, Australia in 2005 and studied architecture under Richard Leplastrier and Kerry and Lindsay Clare at the University of Newcastle.
