The White City – Tel Aviv

The White City is located in the areas surrounding Rothschild Blvd and Allenby St (near the center of Tel Aviv) and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site but it’s not always easy to see why. The buildings of the White City were designed in the “International Style” of the Bauhaus School for Art and Design (Germany), and are characterized by its rounded balconies, sharp angles, white walls, and its utilitarian nature. None of the houses have anything purely aesthetic. Unfortunately, many of these houses have not been renovated and most are dilapidated and gray.
