1270. Bratislava, Hurbanove nám















Dear Janos,

Before becoming the chief designer architect of the Bata shoe
company, architect Vladimir Karfík had worked in both Le
Corbusier's atelier in Paris (1925-26) and Frank Lloyd Wright's
Taliesin office (1929-1930) in the United States.  Later in 1938
he built numerous buildings for Bata including the well-known
16-floor Bata's skyscraper or Building #21 in Zlín used as the
headquarter of the company in this city.

Best regards,
R
