Description

The I.B.M. Building, now known as Weizmann Branch and occupied by law offices, was designed in the 1970s by the architectural firm Yasky & Partners. The buildings unique design places it on a single solid stone foundation and utilizes curved sides to harmonize with the surrounding streets. It is built distinctly in the International style and compliments Tel Aviv's architectural mix of modernism, Bauhaus and the International style, an aesthetic which earned it the nickname, ‘the White City.’
