BAUHAUS in Tel Aviv & Pedestrian-Oriented Buildings

It makes sense, once one thinks about it, that there should be a lot of BAUHAUS in Tel Aviv

The city of Tel Aviv is literally an open museum of the International Style in architecture.

During the 1930s, while the modernist movement in art reached its apogee in Europe, the city of Tel Aviv was in a stage of intensive development. Most of the architects working in the new city at that time were of European background and brought with them the ideas of the modernist movement.

These architects, influenced by the works of Le Corbusier, Erich Mendelsohn, and the Bauhaus School of Art and Design, constructed a large number of buildings in the central area of Tel Aviv.

In light of the huge amount of very bad so-called Modernist architecture which ignores and damages the street, consider in particular the buildings shown in images # 2, 4, 8, 12, 13, and 18 on the link. They appear to be exemplary urban buildings. I suggest that these photos show, if it is not already logically obvious, that one does not need "Traditional" architecture to create a good urban, pedestrian-oriented streetscape. Or, in other words, site plan trumps architecture.

Tel Aviv-Yafo (Hebrew: תֵּל אָבִיב-יָפוֹ; Arabic: تَلْ أَبِيبْ-يَافَاTal Abib-Yafa) is the second largest city in Israel on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It is also the main part of the largest and most populous metropolitan area in Israel, Gush Dan (Dan Bloc).

Tel Aviv-Yafo's jurisdiction is 50,553 dunams (50.6 km˛ or 19.5 mi˛). The population density is 7,445 people per km˛. According to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), as of May 2006, the city's population stood at 379,000, growing at an annual rate of one percent. 96.1% percent of residents are Jewish, while 3.0% are Arab Muslims and 0.9% are Arab Christians. According to some estimates, about 50,000 unregistered foreign workers live in Tel Aviv. According to a 2001 estimate, the metropolitan area of Tel Aviv is the city with the largest Jewish population in the world, with 2.5 million Jews (New York City's metropolitan area, in second place with 1.4 million Jews according to a 2002 study, is the largest Jewish population center in the Diaspora) [1][2]

Despite the fact that the seat of government and parliament are located in Jerusalem, all countries maintaining diplomatic relations with Israel save for El Salvador maintain their embassies in Tel Aviv or other coastal cities.

The larger metropolitan area comprises a number of separate municipalities with around 2.5 million people living in the 14 km sprawl along the Mediterranean coast. Bat Yam, Holon, Ramat Gan, Giv'atayim, Bnei Brak, Petah Tikva, Rishon LeZion, Ramat Hasharon and Herzliya are the other major cities in the area known as Gush Dan.[3]
