It was said in the 1930s that the Middle Eastern city of TEL AVIV had the appearance as if a great fleet of white ocean liners had somehow managed to wash up on the beach. (photo courtesy Molovinsky Educational Institute for Advanced Cultural Studies)
No matter where in the world one decides to take in a football match, it is, in fact, rather difficult to journey to any given athletic facility in any given location and not notice at least a little something in terms of the surrounding environment and landscape.
With that in mind, the blog is very pleased and honored to have been able to arrange a special Derby Day treat — a wonderful blog piece about some of the architecture that can be found in today’s featured city :
“TEL AVIV, THE BAUHAUS PERIOD”
Please enjoy and, if one is not careful, something new in terms of knowledge just may be acquired from the local heavyweight champion of cultrure, history and tradition here in the United States.
In the early 1930s over a dozen young and talented architects fled the Nazis in Adolf Hitler’s Germany and came to Tel Aviv. There, they built thousands of buildings in the Modern / International style influenced by the Bauhaus Movement. (photo courtesy Molovinsky Educational Institute for Advanced Cultural Studies)
