The Liebling Haus- White City Center, co-founded by the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality with the Tel Aviv Foundation and the German government in an effort to advance the recognition of the outstanding architectural landscape of Tel Aviv- with its collection of over 4,000 buildings built in the International Style, also known popularly as "Bauhaus" style, which led UNESCO to declare the White City area in Tel Aviv as a World Heritage Site in 2003. Joining several leading cultural institutions in the city, the Center is a valuable source of information for both residents and visitors about the heritage of the White City.
The opening events of the Center will take place over the weekend of September 19-21 (full program attached), marking the international celebrations of the Bauhaus centennial in collaboration with "Open House Tel Aviv", an annual architecture event.
