Having arrived Friday night, we headed for the English speaking tour of the White City @ 11am on Saturday (46 Rothschild). A great introduction to Tel Aviv. The old pictures of the sand dunes which are now modern Tel Aviv, and the leisurely stroll under the tree lined boulevard made a nice contrast.. Here's what I learned about the Bauhaus movement, in no particular order. Founded in Europe by Gropious, it was a socialist movement to provide housing for the workers, by making housing simpler, less expensive. The irony is that Bauhaus apts and bldgs are exorbitantly expensive in TLV (Tel Aviv) now. Bauhaus bldgs are made of concrete, not symmetrical, with no designs. They were built on stilts to allow cool air to circulate and with balconies to sit on during brutally hit summers. With the advent of a/c, bldgs often had no balconies. What I learned is that I'm not particularly fond of Bauhaus design.
