The Pavilion Plan and Harminc – The Interwar Architecture of the Martin Hospital

The health and social policies of the First Czechoslovak Republic and the modernization of healthcare facilities in Slovakia are closely linked to the work of both Michal M. Harminc and his son Milan A. P. Harminc. The latter’s life and works are almost completely unexplored within Slovak architectural historiography, even in reference to his contribution to the construction and pavilion plan of the Martin hospital. Though his personal estate and archival documentation of his works are only preserved fragmentarily, while his activities in the interwar architectural scene were brief, it can be assumed that he made significant contributions, especially in the design of healthcare buildings and his stylistic opposition to his father.
