Bauhaus Center Tel Aviv
Bauhaus Center Tel Aviv (99 Dizengoff Street, Tel Aviv) – Bauhaus Center Tel Aviv was established in 2000 by Dr. Asher Ben-Shmuel, Shlomit Gross and Dr. Micha Gross. Its goal is to expand public recognition of the “White City” (Tel Aviv’s nickname) as a unique architectural and cultural site.
Tel Aviv’s “White City” is a breathtaking UNESCO world heritage site. It has been reclaimed so because of its unique collection of Bauhaus architecture (a modernistic architectural style started in Germany during the early 1920s). Bauhaus Center Tel Aviv is the city’s center for exploring, learning and experiencing this marvelous piece of culture, and why it was embraced for the development of this city during the 1930s (when the country’s Jewish population was in the midst of resurgence from centuries of Ottoman Islamic rule). In Tel Aviv alone, more than 4,000 “Bauhaus Style” buildings were built. Thousands more were built in Haifa, Jerusalem, the Kibbutzim and elsewhere in Israel.
The Bauhaus Center conducts 2-hour tours, taking participants by some of these structures throughout Tel Aviv. Price: NIS 60 per person (Languages: Hebrew, English, Russian, German, French, Italian). See the Bauhaus website for more details: www.bauhaus-center.com
