Whether you call it Bauhaus or International Style architecture, Tel Aviv is still the only city in the world that houses such a large collection of buildings designed in this style. Many have been recently meticulously renovated and restored. This style of building evolved in Germany in the 1920's, came to an abrupt end (in Germany) with the Nazi's rise to power and continued to develop in the U.S. and elsewhere. In Tel Aviv of the 1930's, Bauhaus architecture flourished, as is evidenced by many of the wonderful buildings that line the city's streets where you can see excellent examples of Bauhaus Architecture from the 1930's, some of which have been recently beautifully restored. The "White City of Tel Aviv" has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
