Description

The Geddes Plan, which drew influence from the garden city movement, is illustrated in this photograph of a residential street in Tel Aviv. Drafted in 1926 and put into effect in 1927, the plan favoured the city dweller, regulating everything from the height of buildings to street widths and space between structures. Economic constraints eventually detracted from the appeal of the Geddes Plan in favor of high investor returns and to meet the enormous demands for housing.
