These houses were built by Jewish architects who fled Nazi Germany and emigrated to what was the British Mandate of Palestine at the time. They designed their houses according to the principles developed by Walter Gropius, integrating features to adapt to the Mediterranean climate of the city founded in 1909. ... Germany plans to invest 2.8 million euros ($3.2 million) to help preserve the cultural heritage. Building minister, Barbara Hendricks, handed a first funding commitment of over 250,000 euros ($285,000) to the mayor of Tel Aviv Ron Chuldai on Thursday (14.05.2015). The money will help finance a Bauhaus Center in Tel Aviv's Max-Liebling House.
This center, which should open in 2017, will allow architects, craftsmen and artists to plan restoration concepts for the Bauhaus buildings in the White City.
