Josef Go r (13 March 1880, Sem n near P elou -10 September 1945, Ji n), was a Czech architect, one of the founders of modern architecture in Czechoslovakia. Josef Go r received his early instruction at the State Technical School in Prague. At the age of 23 he went to study under Jan Kot ra at the Prague School of Applied Arts. For two years afterward, 1906-1908, Go r was employed by Kot ra's studio. At that time he decided to join the M nes Union of Fine Arts, but left it in 1911 to join the Cubist Group of Visual Artists. Go r joined Pavel Jan k, Josef Chochol and Odoln Grege in founding the Prague Art Workshops in 1912. In 1924, following the death of Kot ra, Go r became a professor at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts. After his involvement in cubism, Go r turned to "national" Czech Rondocubism style in the early '20s. Later on he adopted the Functionalist approach to architecture. Among his greatest accomplishments is the Czechoslovak Pavilion for the Exposition internatale des art decoratifs et industriels modernes in Paris of 1925; he was awarded the Grand Prize for that design. In 1926 Go r was awarded the Ordre de la L gion d'honneur.
