11.04.2014: New Acquisitions. Works on Paper 1967–2013
The Museum for Architectural Drawing continues the popularization of the architectural graphic art in a new exhibition exposing the latest acquisitions by the Tchoban Foundation.
The upcoming exhibition will be already the fourth exhibition at the Museum for Architectural Drawing since its opening in Mai 2013, following the successful expositions ‘Pirenesi’s Paestum’ and ‘Architecture in Cultural Strife’.
Founded in 2009, the Tchoban Foundation has already achieved a lot. Its founder Sergei Tchoban is a passionate draftsman himself and a collector of historic architectural drawings. His idea is to support architectural drawing as part of education for young architects.
The focus of the upcoming exhibition lies on the contemporary architectural drawings by renowned international architects made between 1967 and 2013. Included on show are works by Oskar Niemeyer, David Chipperfield, Zaha Hadid, Aldo Rossi and Gottfried Böhm, the only German architect awarded with the Pritzker Prize. Particularly remarkable are the large format drawings of the Japanese Atelier Bow-Wow from the BMW-Guggenheim Lab Project in New York in 2011.
Alongside with drawings by the Western architects the exhibition will present selected works of paper architecture by Russian artists such as architectural fantasies by Artur Skizhali-Veis, architectural drawings by Alexander Brodski as well as architectural sketches by Oleg Kharchenko, the chief-architect of the Olympic facilities in Sochi. In addition to the recent acquisitions, the Tchoban Foundation is particularly pleased to present to the public a number of drawings which have been donated as gifts to the trust.
With this exhibition the curators present the new aquisations and once again promote the main idea of the Foundation – the support of the almost forgotten art of architectural drawing.
