Abstract

Balconies have an important role in the social life of Tel-Aviv. The article explores different aspects of urban politics and the cultural history of balconies, and in particular sheds light on façade balconies in Tel-Aviv as liminal places between the private sphere and the public arena. Focusing on socio-cultural and architectural characteristics, the study presents, from an historical perspective, changes of style and use of the balconies of Tel-Aviv and examines them as sites of dispute between residents and authorities.
