Svagr is a Czech Architect , he was born in 1885 Týnčany And passed away in Bohemia – 1969, Claypole.

He moved to Japan in 1923 and started working there, designing many buildings.

Švagr left Japan due to the war in April 1941 to Latin America where he continued to participate in several projects, but he mainly worked in japan through his career life, and he became famous on the Japanese islands mainly for his earthquake-resistant constructions till nowadays.


History:

In nearby Petrovice he was christened Jan Nepomuk. And it is with this patron, as well as with the picture of Hradčany, that the astonishing architect David Vávra will meet in the stained glass windows of the neo-Gothic church of the Sacred Heart of the Lord in Yokohama, So thanks to his contacts in the local diocese, Jan Josef Švagr designed and built mainly Christian temples and, paradoxically, also one Muslim mosque in Kobe. Its more than twenty constructions realized in Japan are documented.
