Abstracts
Fran Funtak designed two Jewish religious buildings – a great temple in Vinkovci (1922-1923) and a chapel – Zidduk-hadin House at the Vukovar’s Jewish cemetery (1926-1928). The synagogue in Vinkovci is a typical example of the 1920s architecture with the prevailing elements of a classical design vocabulary combined with the elements of Rundbogen and Moorish styles as the typical styles of the 19th century synagogue architecture. The chapel in Vukovar shows a combination of the dominant Art-Deco style and the Moorish elements.
