About three “unknown” buildings designed by Dušan Jurkovič

Matúš Dulla


The data on the less known (or even unknown) structures by our famous architect Dušan Jurkovič can serve to better understanding of his architectural work. A tourist object in Fenštát pod Radhoštem, designed for Dr. Parma has not been included into the list of D. Jurkovič’s architectural works, published in the book by F. Žakavec. Another two structures: a villa for professor Vorel in Velké Meziříčí, and a villa for MP Stohland in Polish town of Wierchomel are nearly forgotten, as they are outside the terrirory of Slovakia. The preserved documentation on the mentioned structures (found in Research Institute of Building Construction and Architecture) document that part of D. Jurkovič’s architectural design which does not belong to top quality works but still preserves his outstanding manuscript.
