The White City (Hebrew:, Ha-Ir HaLevana) refers to a collection of over 4,000 Bauhaus or International style buildings built in Tel Aviv from the 1930s by German Jewish architects who immigrated to the British Mandate of Palestine after the rise of the Nazis. Tel Aviv has the largest number of buildings in this style of any city in the world. Preservation, documentation, and exhibitions have brought attention to Tel Avivs collection of 1930s architecture. In 2003, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed Tel Avivs White City a World Cultural Heritage site, as an outstanding example of new town planning and architecture in the early 20th century. The citation recognized the unique adaptation of modern international architectural trends to the cultural, climatic, and local traditions of the city.
