Following the attack on the New York Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, terror is now discussed in many contexts (e.g. social, psychological, economic, architectural contexts, etc.). A great part of these discussions focuses on the implications of the event for everyday life and on the future construction of the city in general. The present paper deals with the relationship between terror attacks and urban representation, through an analysis of this relationship in the case of Tel Aviv. Over the past few decades, the understanding of urban representation has changed dramatically, blurring the boundaries between the representation of reality and reality itself. In post-structural terms, this process has led to 'The real city, the discursive city (and) the disappearing city' (Donald, 1997). Accordingly, urban representation is no longer taken for granted to be neutral. Instead, the discussion now revolves around subjective points of view that structure the perception of the city and the power relations therein. It is worthwhile to examine extreme events such as terror attacks within this approach.
