A Scotsman in the first Hebrew city: Patrick Geddes and the 1926 town plan for Tel Aviv

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The most ambitious work that Patrick Geddes undertook was his little-known plan for the development of Tel Aviv, Palestine, in the 1920s. In 1925, he drew up a master plan for the city of Tel Aviv. At that time Tel Aviv was a small town with a population of about 25, 000. Geddes presented a report showing his concept of a large garden city of about 100, 000. His plan received its final official approval in 1929, and was the first and only master plan to be approved for Tel Aviv.
