Divided

Tel Aviv is known for its unusual architecture. In many cases, this is reduced to the high amount of Bauhaus buildings which are spread all over the city until today and gave the town the epithet of being the ‘white city’.

The beginning of the 1950ies brought a new and “raw” version of construction which slowly started moving into the cityscape until today – the so-called ‘brutalism’.

An antithesis to the happy and shiny ideas of most of what had been constructed there before, it is marking its reason for existence in an unmissable sign wherever it decided to settle. It tears apart, stands brave, strong and proud. It the end, it conveys an uncomfortable feeling of subservience to whoever will pass by one of these landmarks of complete rawness.
