Dizengoff – vibrant summer in Tel Aviv

The ‘White City’ in Tel Aviv probably boast the largest collection of Bauhaus buildings anywhere in the world, but, more importantly, it is vibrant heart to an energetic city that never sleeps and is always creating.

At the heart of this city one can find the Dizengoff Square. This square is steep in architectural distinction:

  • An original public open space included in Patrick Geddes plan.
  • Designed in 1934 as a total composition by one of the first successful female architects Genia Averbuch
  • Re-engineered in the late 70s to become an elevated square
  • Added a unique kinetic fountain by Yaacov Agam

This old beating heart may yet see another incarnation as plans are being developed to lower the plaza yet again…
