Sand And Splendor. Eclectic Style Architecture In Tel-Aviv.
- Categories 2013
The eclectic style of the 1920s is an attempt to create a different architectural language—different from the one common in Eretz Israel at the time, and different from the languages the immigrant architects had previously known. For a short period in the city’s history, hardly more than a decade, hundreds of buildings were built, some sharing many similarities while others being completely different, yet all were eclectic in style. Standing out in the modern streets of Tel Aviv, these buildings are remnants of the city’s origins and raise questions about identity and different ways of life.
Many eclectic-style buildings in Tel Aviv have been demolished or altered over the years, in the course of the urban development toward modernization or of natural social change. Some 800 buildings belonging to the style still exist today and are under preservation order.
