Moving to Tel-Aviv after living in Spain and France was quite a cultural shock for me: the urban planning of the city as well as its architecture made little sense. So, I began to research. That is how the Cross-Cultural Bauhuas and architectural tour of Tel-Aviv came to life.
The Cross-Cultural Tel Aviv Bauhaus Tour takes you on a fascinating voyage through time relating to architecture as reflections of cultural logic. Starting where Tel Aviv began you will walk along the historic architectural timeline of Tel Aviv, exploring unique buildings and hidden messages embedded in architecture. You will discover why Tel-Aviv became an international Bauhaus capital, how does architecture point at Tel-Aviv’s identity and subconscious, what cultural narratives are told via architecture and how you can decipher local codes just by looking Cross-Culturally around you. You will explore the fabulous connections between political agendas, fashion, economic interests and architecture styles.
By the end of this engaging Tel Aviv tour you shall definitely look at Tel Aviv with very different eyes, triggered by the cross-cultural insights you experienced!

“One of the best guided tours I’ve been to – worldwide – and a very interesting take on not only Bauhaus, but the whole history of Tel Aviv. We left the tour with many new insights and lots of things to discuss.”

“Ilyll made us look sharply. Look behind the facades. Think about what we’ve seen and evaluate on our own. She made us curious for more when we stroll through the streets on our own next time.”
