About Change this

Slovak International Modernist architect. Belluš` modernizing contribution to the environment in Slovakia was very expressive. For a long time, he was perceived as a creator who interrupted the direct tradition of past domestic works. His monographer Martin Kuss states:

"Bellus does not try to fasten on the preceding generation of older Slovak architects...It also would be difficult to find his contacts with the pre-war or post-war Modernity of the former Austro-Hungarian monarchy or in the works of Budapest or Vienna. He fastens directly on the works of modern architecture through the Czech Avant-garde he became acquainted with during his studies."
