Tag Archives: Tel Aviv

This is a glimpse of what I hope to see in Israel this coming week. I am hoping to explore the “White City” in Tel Aviv along with countless other great architectural treasures. I will have lots to share upon my return.

On my recent trip to Israel I planned some extra time to see just a few of the thousand or so Bauhaus stucco buildings that still exist in Tel Aviv. They are not hard to find or identify. Their distinctive features–from balconies, vertical glass stairwells, horizontal bands and rounded forms to the unmistakable stucco exteriors–are dotted all over the city. Clearly, some have had sensitive renovations and others are in a complete state of disrepair.
