Hudec completed 60 % of his works between 1927 and 1937.His works have been varied – from offices, hotels, hospitals, churches, cinemas, schools, factories, apartments to private residences that were a kaleidoscope of styles, including Classicism, Eclecticism, Expressionism, Art Deco , Modernism and Regionalism. The quantity, quality and variety of his works were rarity even by world standards, especially in the history of architecture. He had the ability and flexibility to adapt to different clients. Together with his Chinese clients he came up with some stunning creations. His smart approach to modernism and diversification, between Chinese and Western cultures, was the spirit behind Shanghai culture.
Hudec’s main style is reflected in the integrated geometry, varied form, rich detail and original ideas. His thinking never dried out, and among his projects, the motive has never been the same, which is indeed rare for an architect.
While you are probably already familiar with his most famous works : Park Hotel, The Grand Theater and Moore Memorial Church, you may not know about these architectural gems he designed as well.
