To understand a city it’s sometimes necessary to understand how it intersects with other cities. Because places influence each other, just as people or stories do. Someone arriving in Tel Aviv will find numerous examples of Bauhaus architecture. Indeed, it’s the city with the greatest number of buildings in this style, ahead of any German city. This is because of Jewish architects came here fleeing Nazism in Europe in the 1930s.

The unique shapes of these buildings, which resemble boxes, were designed to be useful, beautiful and as a movement against the bourgeoisie. They are the predominate construction in Tel Aviv, which also has modern skyscrapers, older constructions, luxury shopping centres and traditional spice markets.

There are other contrasts in Israel’s second city, along with big social and cultural differences. For example, if you walk along the beach between the old port and the modern one, you will find very different areas that are not delimited physically but by the customs of the local people. There is an area for dogs, a beach reserved for Orthodox Jews where men go on one day and women on the other, an area preferred by gay people, a space where Arabs tend to congregate, another for surfers, another for the tourists… Culture, cuisine and eclecticism in a city that, while it may be less popular than others, almost always surprises.
