Recorded 11.10.2018 at Tschechisches Zentrum Berlin
At the beginning of the 20th century Zlín was a small town with no more but regional importance. But then the Baťa family began to develop the shoe factory and build the company town nearby. Thus emerged an extraordinary example of a modernist city complex, but the architectural heritage is quickly vanishing under sediments of recent conversions. The presentation by Klára Eliášová and Barbora Vacková introduced the book “The Baťa Home: Zlín’s Vanishing Architectural Elements” focusing on the residential architecture in Zlín, specifically on the family houses intended for the company employees.
