White Wash

4000 Bauhaus/International Style buildings make up The White City in Tel Aviv, constructed in the 1930's by German Jewish architects who had immigrated to Palestine to escape the rise of the Nazi's. The White City is the largest collection of this style of building anywhere in the world.
Today, many of the striking buildings are in varying states of decay, while many are slowly being restored to their pristine white facades.

White walls against glaring blue sky with ripples of heat distorting the sharp, smooth lines and right angles; turning the structures into quivering mirages.
