Jan Dubový (Lazce, Austria-Hungary, 9 February 1892 - Liberec, Czechoslovakia, 19 August 1969) was a Czech and Serbian architect.


He studied architecture in Prague under the guidance of the prominent Czech architect Josef Fanta (creator of Prague's Main Railway Station). In 1922 he moved to Belgrade in the then Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, where he began working in the studio and office of another Czech architect, Matěj Blecha. However, he did not work there for long; after some time he was employed in the design office of the city of Belgrade, where he worked as an architect and designer. He introduced the idea of ​​modernism for the then Serbian and Yugoslav architecture, [1]but worked on the urban development of the Serbian metropolis, which was interested in gaining a representative form of the newly formed state.

Together with several local architects, he founded the Group of Architects of the Modern Direction (GAMP).[2] In 1934 he left Belgrade for Skopje and later for Bitola, where he designed several residential houses.

During the Second World War he lived in the Balkans (he lived in Kruševac and Niš for some time), after the conflict he returned to Czechoslovakia; he taught in high school in Liberec.


The works carried out by Jan Dubový include, for example, the Belgrade Observatory[3], the Slovak Evangelical Church in the village of Ostojićevo and Arkady Miletić's villa. It is best known for the restoration of Cvetni trg, which is located between Terazije Avenue and Slavija Square. He also participated in the creation of several houses with social housing in the Serbian capital.
