Tel Aviv has the largest collection of architecture in the International of any city in the world. This photograph is an example of housing built in the Bauhaus style, a style developed in pre-Nazi Germany. Because of the climate in Tel Aviv, the windows were downsized (Bauhaus architecture in Europe generally features a large window). This building also has many other features of the Bauhaus style, including curved surfaces, asymmetry and a lack of ornamentation.
