In 1934, architect Genia Averbuch won a competition for the design of a municipal plaza in Tel Aviv. Averbuch, who immigrated from Russia with her family at the age of two, had already collaborated on a number of Tel Aviv projects.

This one – Dizengoff Circle – was destined to become the new city’s leading public park. It was modern for the times, and charming, and I remember it well. For it was here, in 1968, that I met the handsome paratrooper I was destined to marry.
