White City, Black City : Architecture and War in Tel Aviv and Jaffa, Paperback Book

White City, Black City : Architecture and War in Tel Aviv and Jaffa Paperback

Description

This is the history of colonialism as seen though the architecture of Israel/Palestine.

Tel Aviv is the 'White City', said to have risen from the sands of the desert, acclaimed worldwide for its architectural heritage and gleaming Bauhaus-inspired Modernism. Jaffa is the 'Black City', the Palestinian city that was largely obliterated to make way for a new European-style architecture at the heart of a newly-formed Israel.

Both a gripping narrative and a unique architectural record, this book shows how any city in the world is made not only of stones and concrete but also of stories and histories - victors and losers, predator and prey.

In this way, the legend of the Black City and the White City, architecture and war, is our story too.
