 The Geddes plan - "Garden City".

It was designed for 100,000 people and called for dwellings set back from the street with a garden at the center of each block, accessible through small alleys.

Geddes designed Tel Aviv as a central city, believing that the city is the suitable place for human society. He adhered to the combination of landscape morphology and culture, setting  out to foster society's link with nature and the environment by creating a "green" city that prompts active social  life. Tel Aviv was to serve as a living proof of harmony and balance between pragmatism and vision. Thus he envisioned the city's  future  as a commercial and financial metropolis and a focal point of lively cultural life.
