GENEVA – The exhibition "Tel Aviv: The White City" is making its first
European stop in the Swiss town Mendrizio with an abundance of
historical documents, plans, drawings, photographs, models, biographies,
video films and animations that together make up a formidable lesson in
architecture, even for amateurs.
The exhibition shows an invaluable material which illustrates the design
of hundreds of buildings built in the international style, during the
period between 1931 and 1948.
