TOURING "THE WHITE CITY" OF TEL AVIV
"The White City" of Tel Aviv includes the world's largest grouping of buildings in the
International Style, also known as Bauhaus. It was proclaimed by UNESCO, in July 2003,
as a World Cultural Heritage site, in recognition of the special architectural qualities
of the buildings, streets, squares and boulevards of the White City.
In the 1930's, many immigrants came to Tel Aviv from Germany, numbering among them, the
young architects Arie Sharon and Yaakov Rechter, graduates of the Bauhaus School of Art and
Design, who brought with them architectural styles and ideas, which were new for the period.
"The White City" is the story of Tel Aviv, from its beginning to the present time, and is a wonderful
opportunity to savor the experience of life in Tel Aviv, in the past and in the present.
