ENAn architect Jonas Kovalskis-Kova, after finishing his studies of architecture in France, Ecole Regionale Superieure des Beaux Arts in 1935, came back to Lithuania, and besides an administrative job started teaching at Vytautas Magnus University and was the director of decorative architecture studies in Kaunas Institute of Arts (1940-1944). J. Kovalskis was a man of the Western culture and a favorite teacher for his students. Before his emigration J. Kovalskis became famous in Lithuania as a talented, productive architect in designing buildings, interiors, and in territory planning. He was especially distinguished as an expert of interiors. By using the forms of Lithuanian folk architecture, transforming them, he created the famous interior of Kaunas Karininkų Ramovė and lots of other interiors and furniture. While coordinating modernized elements of classical order with national motives, he did not avoid eclecticism and stylization. When the Second World War reached Lithuania he emigrated to the West, and in 1949 he came to the USA, settled in Chicago and established a personal firm. He realized the following projects for the Lithuanians of Chicago: St. Cross Parish Sisters' Abbey (1954), Monastery of Marions, premises for „Draugas“ newspaper (1956), Jesuits' Monastery Chapel, Youth's Centre (1958), etc. J. Kovalskis-Kova used to write articles for the press of the Lithuanians' emigration, analyzed the problems of Lithuanian architecture, historical styles. In 1977 he died and was buried in the Lithuanians' Cemetery in Chicago. [Text from author]
