The “White City” in Tel Aviv has been a World Heritage Site since 2003. It was built in the 1930s. Many of the buildings were designed in the International style and built by Jewish architects who had fled from the National Socialism in Germany.
The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety launched the “Tel Aviv White City Network” project to support the establishment of a Centre for Heritage-Led Building in the city of Tel Aviv. In addition, the teaching of construction and craft skills is designed to make a contribution to heritage-driven refurbishment of the “White City”.
This website contains details of numerous activities associated with the project.
