Weekly trip review: Tel Aviv tour of Bauhaus Architecture
Oddly enough I think this was one of my favorite trips so far in Tel Aviv. Maybe it was because we did it early in the day or because of the gorgeous weather, but the information was really interesting and I really enjoyed our tour guide.
Bauhaus is a German style of architecture that began with Walter Gropius in 1918. The Bauhaus had a major influence on art and architectural trends in Israel - particularly in the White City, Tel Aviv. In 2004 Tel Aviv was named on the list of world heritage sites by the UN due to the abundance of Bauhaus architecture. There are over 4,000 Bauhaus inspired structures to this day.
What i really loved about this tour was getting to see more of the city and getting to know a little bit more about the building I pass by everyday. Normally I wouldn’t give certain buildings a second glance but our guide pointed out several beautiful buildings that had French and even Indian influences in the design. Overall I had a great time and loved walking around the city.
In the pics you have me, some of the buildings we looked at and my friends Edan, Aaron, and Max just being goofy. Gotta love these guys.
