Content

Sergei Tchoban is a German architect of Russian origin, who has won numerous awards and who works and teaches internationally. In addition to his architectural practice, he has created an impressive number of drawings which oscillate between personal artistic expression and urban, architectural fantasies, and have been on public display in numerous international exhibitions. In 2009, he founded the Tchoban Foundation to provide a home for his first-class collection of architectural drawings that covers several centuries. In 2013, the Foundation opened the Museum for Architectural Drawing in Berlin. Alongside the permanent collection, it puts on three to four temporary exhibitions every year.

In this book, this architect, artist, collector and museum founder engages in four conversations with distinguished Berlin-based architectural curator Kristin Feireiss, and talks for the first time about his fascination for these activities, and how he sees the world, the medium of drawing and architecture. These discussions are supplemented by an essay by writer and broadcaster Deyan Sudjic, the former Director of the London Design Museum, and illustrated with photographs and drawings.

 

Kristin Feireiss is a writer and publisher and co-founded Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin in 1980. She served as director of Nederlands Architectuurinstituut NAi in Rotterdam 1996 to 2001 and has been a member of the Pritzker Prize Jury.
