Tel Aviv’s Central Bus Station is an architectural maze of epic proportions. Originally designed by Ram Carmi in 1967 as a futuristic emblem to serve the growing population of Tel Aviv, it has since existed as a Mecca of diversity where bric-a-brac vendors, culinary oddities and abandoned architectural marvels sit side by side throughout seven stories of banal delights. Inspired by Walter Benjamin's theory of casual wandering and dérive, the mid 1950's artistic movement of situationism, our White Elephant Tour explores a city within a city that is Tel Aviv's Central Bus Station.
