Ščepánová, Soňa
After the establishment of the First Czechoslovak republic, many Czech experts settled in Slovakia, including young architects Alois Balán and Jiří Grossmann. In Bratislava, they significantly contributed to the establishment of modern principles with their architectural works, dealt with the regulation of the city and also produced intensive publishing activity. After 1939 they were forced to return to Bohemia, where they continued with their activities. Architects are considered to be important actors of interwar architecture in Slovakia, however they are still not well known in Czech historiography, even though Alois Balán was active on the architectural scene in Moravia. The aim of this paper is to contribute to the complete picture of the phenomenon of Czech architects in Slovakia and to recall the importance of their work for both Slovak and Czech history of architecture.
