Kikar Dizengoff - Reines 2, Tel Aviv,
Dizengoff Square was inaugurated in 1938. Over the years it underwent many changes, but continued to play a central role in the ‘White City’. In addition to its architectural importance, it was the center of vibrant social life that shaped the unique character of Tel Aviv.
In 2016, the Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality decided to renovate the square and restore it to its original design, by the landscape architecture firm “Moria Sekely”.
The exhibition will review the history of Dizengoff Square and celebrate its renewal.
Speakers at the opening ceremony by:
Dr. Keren Mitrani, an architect specializing in documentation, planning and development of historical buildings. Mitrani teaches at the Azrieli School of Architecture at Tel Aviv University, and serves as an external lecturer at Bar-Ilan University on planning, construction and architecture in Israel.
Mr. Mor Gilboa – CEO of Green Course and head of the Green City
Party. Gilboa was one of the founders of the Front to lower Dizengoff Square and one of the leaders of the successful protest to lower the square without an underground parking lot.
