New Acquisitions

Works on Paper. 1967-2013

Following the successful exhibition ‘Pirenesi’s Paestum’ and ‘Architecture in Cultural Strife’, the exhibition of the new acquisitions of the Tchoban Foundation focuses on contemporary architectural drawing. Included on show are works by Oskar Niemeyer, David Chipperfield, Zaha Hadid, Aldo Rossi and the only German Pritzker prize winner until now, Gottfried Böhm. The large format drawings of the Japanese architectural office Bow-Wow from the BMW-Guggenheim Lab Project in New York, 2011, are particularly unusual.

This exhibition again contains a selection of Russian works on paper, for example Artur Skizhali-Veis’s architectural fantasies, designs by the main architect of the Olympic site in Sochi, Oleg Kharchenko, for the winter Olympics 2014, as well as architectural graphics by Alexander Brodsky. Alongside 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.
