  • Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 and developed as a metropolitan city under the British Mandate in Palestine. The "White City" portion of Tel Aviv was constructed from the early 1930s until the 1950s, based on the urban plan by Sir Patrick Geddes, reflecting modern organic planning principles. The buildings were designed by architects who were trained in Europe where they practiced their profession before immigrating. They created an outstanding architectural ensemble of the Modern Movement in a new cultural context.
