Tel Aviv, Israel - State of
BAUHAUS BUILDING AT THE CORNER OF 1 ZAMENHOF STREET AND DIZENGOF SQUARE
IN TEL AVIV.
A Bauhaus building at the corner of 1 Zamenhof Street and Dizengof
Square in Tel Aviv. The principal idea of rounded forms and balconies
looks like a happy solution, but the shape imposed limitations on the
buildings because of the technology available at the time.
Fibre-reinforced concrete might have provided an easier solution,
especially for the hung projections of the balconies, not all the
balconies are useable; some are just decorative. The 21-member UNESCO
organisation made a unanimous declaration in Paris, describing as a
"White City" Tel Aviv-Jaffa's unique historical urban palatte and
naming it a world heritage site. The UNESCO statement makes Tel
Aviv-Jaffa city of world-class architectural and curltural importance.
