Central Bus Station is one of the biggest and at the same time, one of the most pathetic stations in the world. Its architect's visionary plans for a building that will engulf its visitors turned into an endless maze of corridors.
The gift for Tel Aviv's citizens now serves as a haven for refugees from all over the world. Yonatan has been guiding people through for 17 years already, showing people, who follow, the dark side of the station. He discovers communities in places that were supposed to stay hidden. These communities are overseeing their traditions and values, and they want to defend their new home. This way, the building reflects a world of the society outside it's walls.

“The central bus station is not interested at all in who you are or what you want to do...It takes some effort but if you cross that line and step inside, you get an opportunity to have a safe space to be whoever you want to be.” The Guardian http://ow.ly/gZvp50BrNK9
