The White City

Tel Aviv („The White City“) Bauhaus Architecure (Vintage Photos). Not all of it looks Bauhaus, but you can see how the city looked during the 1930’s/1940’s, when many German-born Jewish architects (trained in Bauhaus) were settling into the city and making their impression on the city’s architecture.

Bauhaus Tel Aviv

Tel-Aviv’s #Modern #Movement – The White City (Hebrew: העיר הלבנה‎‎, Ha-Ir ha-Levana) refers to a collection of over 4,000 buildings built in a #unique form of the #Bauhaus or International Style in #TelAviv from the 1930s by #German #Jewish #architects who immigrated to the #British Mandate of #Palestine after the rise of the #Nazis. Tel Aviv has the largest number of buildings in the Bauhaus/International #Style of any city in the world. Preservation, documentation, and exhibitions have brought attention to Tel Aviv’s collection of 1930s architecture. In 2003, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (#UNESCO) proclaimed Tel Aviv’s #WhiteCity a #World #Cultural #Heritage site, as „an outstanding example of new town planning and architecture in the early 20th century.“ The citation recognized the unique adaptation of modern international architectural trends to the cultural, climatic, and local traditions of the city. The Bauhaus Center in Tel Aviv organises regular architectural tours of the city.
