Collection: BAUHAUS

In 2003, UNESCO declared the White City of Tel Aviv as a unique World Heritage Site of the modern movement and to manifest the recognition of the outstanding architectural landscape of Tel Aviv, featuring over 4,0000 international style buildings constructed during th 1930s - a unique place in the whole world for Bauhaus lovers.

Architects who migrated from Europe following the spread of Nazism introduced modernism to the emerging settlement known today as Tel Aviv. Their functional, economical architecture, with its simple geometry and absent ornamentation, accommodated the need for rapid, affordable housing and embodied the ideals of the socialist, almost utopian society. However, these European educated architects also realized that the Middle Eastern climate requires adjustments: smaller, deeper windows, recessed, shaded balconies and pilotis that generated air circulation, allowing the sea breeze to flow and cool the building.
