Expo 1937 – Paris

The exhibition pavilion of 1937 is one of the most remarkable Czech pavilions at the world exhibitions. The pavilion consisted of a unique steel structure with a bulged glass wall – in the night the whole building was one big light and thus was a shining advertisement of the two top branches of Czech industry.

The building was provided with wide galleries offering views of the city and dominated with a slim truncated flag post. The work by Kotěra's disciple Jaromír Krejcar and his colleagues Bohuslav Soumar, Zdeněk Kejř and designer Ladislav Sutnar was far ahead of its time and today is generally classified as the first predecessor of the high-tech style. At that time our republic was still one of the most advanced countries of the world.
