  • A photographic guide to the 'White City' of Tel Aviv, which contains over 4000 white Bauhaus buildings
  • Celebrates the city's current state while placing it within its historical context
Over 4,000 white Bauhaus buildings give Tel Aviv its most famous name: 'the White City'. The city centre, created in the 1930s and '40s under the influence of international modernism, was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 2003. Many architects, most of them emigrating from Europe, found opportunities here to realize their ideological principles and architectural ideas. Tel Aviv's modernism is characterised by a specific combination of functionality and elegance. While the buildings are adapted to the climatic conditions, many of them display highly specific stylistic features.

Stefan Boness succeeds in capturing the particularities and unique atmosphere of the city in his photographs. By juxtaposing classical modernism with the contemporary architecture of the city, he demystifies it while simultaneously embedding it in its historical context.

This book is published to celebrate the centenary of the Bauhaus movement in 2019. Text in English and German.
