Sergei Tchoban: Drawing Buildings/Building Drawings

Russian-German architect, artist, and collector Sergei Tchoban is the focus of Sergei Tchoban: Drawing Buildings/Building Drawings, an exploratory exhibition that brings together fifty of the architect’s large scale urban fantasy drawings, deeply personal contemplations about the past, present, and future of his favorite cities – Saint Petersburg, Rome, Amsterdam, Venice, Berlin, New York – along with documentation on five realizations – two museums, two exhibition pavilions, and a theater stage design. The show traces design process and highlights the architect’s intentions behind his searching architecture. Tchoban is questioning his own impact on some of these cities.

Iranian architect and concept designer Nasim Sehat has developed an alternative living module driven by adaptability for the gig economy. SLICE is described as a “sustainable, people centric, connected, self-contained, and flexible plug’n-play urban solution” targeted at future city dwellers.

SLICE consists of a layered module of functional plugins, combined to create basic spatial configurations. In tandem with the design of SLICE’s spatial profile, Shanghai-based Sehat has proposed a shared, on-demand digital service for module rental, maintenance, and payment.

In a creative scene that is already bursting with talent and innovation, Atelier Deshaus' works in China stand out. Their projects, often renovations of existing spaces, do not follow particular rules of style set by others or even themselves. Yet they are united  in their subtle and enigmatic take on the experience of space in the ever-changing urban environments in China.
