Dofková, Jekaterina ; Kyselka, Mojmír (referee) ; Urbášková, Hana (referee) ; Šlapeta, Vladimír (advisor)
The relationship between Czech and Russian avantgarde has not been properly examined, therefore the aim of this research was to understand the real facts and uncover “ the blind spots“ connected with the specific development of avantgarde architecture in Czechoslovakia and Soviet Union. A comprehensive and moreless thorough detailed reconstruction of the interwar period has been created with the help of comparative and historiographic analysis. This period used to be interpreted quite contrarily under the political pressure of the Soviet regime. The thesis analyses the influence of the political regime on architecture, determines the reflection of the events in the Soviet Union on the opinions of Czechoslovak architects by means of testimonies about mutual contacts, mutual criticism and cooperation in the sphere of architecture. The thesis brings and concludes new information regarding Czech architects who were designing and working in the Soviet Union. The research is based on archive documents, articles from specialized contemporary magazines and debates between Czech and Russian architects.
Czechoslovak Architects in the USSR
Dofková, Jekaterina
The paper focuses on the activity of Czechoslovak architects in the USSR in the 1930s. For many decades, this topic has been obscured by ideology. In his article entitled “In Search for the Unrealized Heritage”, architecture historian Selim Khan-Magomedov observes that there is a lack of accurate information about joint Czech-Russian projects. Works by many Czech architects have not been preserved in Russian archives. This is confirmed by František Sammer, a Czech architect who made a trip to the USSR between 1933 and 1937.
