Expo 1922 – Rio de Janeiro

The very first Czechoslovak pavilion for a world exhibition was designed in a decorative style imitating Czech rural architecture. This was a specialty of the Czech architect Pavel Janák, whose creative period between the two world wars was marked by this very effort to create a "national architectural style" for support of identity of the newly established Czechoslovak state. The same "rural" style is shown by the most famous architectural achievement of Janák, the building of the crematorium in Pardubice.
