Tchoban Foundation Museum for Architectural Drawing is hosting its second exhibition from Sir John Soane's Museum, showing masterpieces of British Neoclassicism. The exhibition illustrates the ambition of leading British architects of the late 18th century who strove to create new architecture in the Classical tradition that could compete – in terms of public works, private houses, mausolea, interior detail and even furnishings - with the glories of the Ancient World.

The vernissage is on the 2nd. of October at 7 pm. Helen Dorey, deputy director of the Sir John Soane´s Museum in London, has been invited to hold the opening speech. Followed by Sergei Tchoban, founder of the Tchoban Foundation and Nadja Bartels, director of the Museum for Architectural Drawing.
