The White City in Tel Aviv constitutes the largest ensemble of buildings in early modern style worldwide and is a part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

First actions regarding The Center will be taken in celebration of the anniversary year 2015 (50 years of the establishment of German-Israeli relations). Among the rest, a concept competition is being initiated here to draw up ideas for combining the functions and activities of the Center with an existing historic structure.

The building which was erected by the architect Dov Karmi, is an outstanding example of White City architecture and is currently owned by the City.
