LUDVÍK KYSELA
FAÇADE OF THE BAŤA STORE
IN PRAGUE, 1927—29

The footwear magnate Tomáš Baťa is the Czech answer to Henry Ford: he built an empire that included an entire town with modern factories. He worked with leading architects, who also built his Functionalist shops. The most important is on Wenceslas Square in Prague, but shops with the Bata logo can be found on every continent.
