Bauhaus Museum Opens in Tel Aviv’s White City

The White City of Tel Aviv, adds to its vast collection of International Style buildings a new Bauhaus Museum, which opened on 25 April 2008. The first exhibition includes original furniture, graphics, lamps, and glass and ceramic ware, by Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer, Christian Bell, Wilhelm Wagenfeld, and others. The 1,300-square-foot museum is located, appropriately, in an International Style building at 21 Bialik Street, owned by philanthropist and art collector Ron Lauder. The block-long street in the heart of Tel Aviv is lined with International Style and eclectic-style houses that were once the residences of writers, artists, and intellectuals. Future exhibits will focus on design, architecture and Bauhaus beginnings in Israël.
