Recently renovated by the Municipality of Tel Aviv Jaffa, Beit Ha’ir sits in the historical Town Hall of Tel-Aviv and forms part of the Bialik Complex – a center of Hebrew and Israeli culture that comprises a pivotal chapter in the history and cultural life of the city. The Bialik Square and its surrounding buildings, including Beit Ha’ir, have been declared a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is included in the area of Tel Aviv that has been designated a “White City” for its unique variant of modern international architecture. The building was restored and preserved by the Tel Aviv Development Fund under the planning of architect Meira Kowalsky.
Beit Ha’ir (Hebrew for Town Hall) is designed to be an open house for those residents, artists, writers, scholars, tourists, and other guests who want to become better acquainted with Tel Aviv and allows visitors to partake in its story and spirit. The hall is a lively hub of exhibitions and information about the city in all its historical periods, as well as an active civic arena — a place to conduct current public debates and to advance urban processes.
