Modern and/or Totalitarian in the Architecture of the 20th Century in Slovakia

Modern and/or Totalitarian in the Architecture of the 20th Century in Slovakia

A collective of architecture experts led by Henrieta Moravčíková from the Department of Architecture at ÚSTARCH SAV examine the influence of authoritarian regimes on architectural production in the Slovak-English book Moderné a/alebo totalitné v architektúra 20. storočia na Slovensku (Modern and/or Totalitarian in the Architecture of the 20th Century in Slovakia).

The team selected seven works, five of which are in Bratislava: the Branch Office of the Czechoslovak National Bank (currently the seat of the General Prosecution), Námestie Slobody (Freedom Square), the SNP Bridge, the sprawling Petržalka housing estate and the Slovak Radio building. The Representation House in Žilina and the Socialist town of Nová Dubnica are also discussed.
