The exhibition at the Urban Planning Lounge displays the city's unique landscape scheme as designed 100 years ago by the town planner of Tel Aviv, Patrick Geddes. The plan laid out the new city as a grid of residential perimeter blocks, with a ‘block garden’ planted in each of their centers. Together they define the White City's socio-landscape genome.

The exhibition, the result of a comprehensive research made by our office, was born out of the urgent need to acknowledge historic and contemporary open space in the modern city. Particularly in view of climate crisis and the depletion of natural resources, the block gardens present as essential components In Tel Aviv’s present wellbeing and future development.
