As demonstrated by the hauntingly beautiful drawings in this book, Tchoban has spent much of his adult life looking at architecture around the world. Buildings function for Tchoban as crucibles of beauty, as objects of desire and fascination, and, most powerfully, as talismans with which he focuses and channels his creative energy into intuitive and sometimes mystical realms. Hand-drawn perspectives and atmospheric images envisioning the ideas behind architectural projects today represent a rare medium in the modern field of construction. This volume presents a selection of drawings by Sergei Tchoban, Architekt BDA, that accompany his very own process of designing architecture. Tchoban reflects references to neoclassicism and constructivism in his work, featuring the idea of the 'Grand Tour of Europe' and reminiscent of the visions of Piranesi and Escher. As a leitmotif of his entire work, he repeatedly incorporates the element of water, examining the phenomenon of ebb and flow, and the mystification of dream worlds.
