Abstract:Since 2004 the website “Tel Aviv White-City” has been discussing the Modern Heritage of Tel Aviv; the built form of its identity. It is the re­sult of a process that dates back to the 1970s; when artistical media began to deal with The White City as a memory device. This process testimonies how artistical media have been realizing the Sorge (Care) and; then; the preservation of the city; according to Heidegger’s philo­sophical language. It has given birth to the restructuration of city’s life and identity; and takes inspiration from the re-telling of local recent history. The latest results of this cultural mediatization of the city are the Conservation Plan; the new Master Plan and the Strategic Plan; determining a new urban development trend; the main theme of which is the reconstruction of the telavivi identitity.

This trend is the rejuvenation of a former one; that happened in the early beginnings of city’s life; when artistical representations of the young Tel Aviv were nourishing the sense of place and; then; the cultural dimension of its development. In this light; Soskin’s photo­graphs and Gutman’s drawings might be considered expressions of preserving the ensemble of the most recent memories of the city.
