LOS ANGELES, CA.- In the solo exhibit Sergei Tchoban Architectural Drawings, the author presents a line of architectural fantasies and imaginary studies, which above all depict the dialectic between historical and contemporary architecture.

Sergei Tchoban studied at the architectural department at the Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg, Russia before moving to Germany in 1991. His most significant works are realized in Berlin, Moscow and St. Petersburg. In 2009 he founded the Tchoban Foundation - Museum for Architectural Drawing. He works not only as an architect, but also as a curator, lecturer and architectural draftsman.

Displayed within the exhibit are works from Diary Series (2002), in which Sergei Tchoban refers to the historical period of flooding of the beautiful, old cities during the leadership of Joseph Stalin. The sketches depict the canals and manmade reservoirs originating from that time period; such as church towers, which were located on the highest point of the city were only partly flooded, sticking out of the water and transferring into abstract sculptures. A traveller depicts this in his composed notes – an imaginative diary.

Some of his drawings examine the breadth of a contrasting dialog between historical and contemporary architectural layers. They are often about the possibility and meaning in contemporary architecture in the building of the city landscape.

Sergei Tchoban’s work presents us with a repertoire of memory, inspiration and fantasy for all the ages in which architecture has played a fundamental role, and at times victim of political power, and its continuous existence after the political climate within which it was created has shifted.
