Tel Aviv, Bauhaus and Mendeli

Before the state of Israel was founded, the city of Tel Aviv started its more or less planned growth under the British Mandate of Palestine, and in the 1930’s German Jewish architects escaping the Nazi regime began constructing buildings in Bauhaus architectural style in the city center. Then, those clean-shaped buildings sprouted. 

The Bauhaus school was founded by architect Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919 and the idea was to create a total work of art in which all arts, including architecture, would eventually be brought together.

And that is exactly what  the 2016 exhibition of The Bauhaus #itsalldesign at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art shows. The display presents works by Bauhaus luminaries, among them Oskar Shclemmer and Walter Gropius, and by contemporary designers, such as Konstantin Grcic and Thomas Lommée.

Visitors will see at the exhibit how the universal design principles formulated by the Bauhaus school that combined art, craft and industry and eschewed local traditions, manifest themselves and when stepping out of the museum breathe the atmosphere of the city with more Bauhaus buildings in the world: more than 4,000. That profusion gave Tel Aviv its synonym, White City.

And your favorite boutique hotel in the White City, Mendeli Street Hotel, also passionate about art and design, welcomes you to enjoy our new design features and commissioned art, giving you one more reason to choose us.
