German architect who designed more than 50 churches, most in neo-Gothic style.
His most important project was the renovation and redesign of the facade of the Romans, the medieval town hall of Frankfurt. Meckel took part in a competition in 1889 and won with a pompous neo-gothic design, which aroused the enthusiasm of Kaiser Wilhelm II. From 1896 to 1899 the Roman was renovated according to his revised designs. The sandstone balcony and the four imperial statues were erected in niches between the windows of the imperial hall behind the facade.
Two of his brothers were Generals, Wilhelm (1859-1935) and Jacob (1842-1906), while his brother Ludwig (1860-1927) was a well-known painter of hunting scenes.
His son Carl Anton Meckel (1875-1938) also became a noted architect.
Max Meckel was the grandfather of the writer Eberhard Meckel and the great-grandfather of the writer and graphic artist Christoph Meckel.
Max Meckel died on 24 December 1910 in Freiburg im Breisgau, aged 63.
