An exploration of the extensive Tchoban Foundation collections presented by the founder himself, Sergei Tchoban.
Contemporary architectural drawings and remarkable drawings from past centuries: from the works of the German architects Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Matthias Daniel Pöppelmann, Leo von Klenze and Herman Geisler, to the drawings of works in Russia by Vincenzo Brenna, Giacomo Quarenghi, Eduard Gaertner, Andrey Burov and Boris Iofan, through to contemporary works by Oscar Niemeyer, David Chipperfield, Zaha Hadid, Aldo Rossi and Gottfried Böhm.
All this is represented in the collections of the foundation, which has recently opened a new museum in Berlin.
