Štefan Svetko /1926 - 2009/ studied architecture in Prague and worked all his life in Bratislava. Innovative technical solutions and a generous formal language are typical of Svetko's work. He was also actively involved in urban planning, mainly in the form of housing estates or the Bratislava development plan. In 1968, he stood up against the occupation by the Russian army, which led to a partial ban on architectural activity. In 1989, during the Velvet Revolution, he was also active in civil society.
