Tomáš Baťa. (April 3, 1876 Zlín, Moravia - July 12, 1932).

The Villa of Tomáš Baťa was an early architectural achievement in Zlín (the construction was finished in 1911)

The development of the modern city is closely connected to the Bata Shoes company. Due to Bata's managerial excellence Zlín became famous for the company's extraordinary social scheme developed after the First World War and its modernist urbanism. (image by Olivier Blaise)
