Russian architects Sergei Tchoban and Sergey Kuznetsov of Speech have created a museum for architectural drawings in Berlin’s arts district. The form and design of the construction makes it a landmark overlooking one of the city’s liveliest districts. The building’s architecture demonstrates its functions, so that it is both the medium and the message.
At the Museum for Architectural Drawings, the award-winning home of the Tchoban Foundation in Berlin, an exhibition features drawings testifying to the epic cultural battle between the representatives of constructivism in Moscow and of neoclassicism in St Petersburg.
After the praise they received at the most recent Architecture Biennale in Venice for covering the Russian pavilion in QR panels, the SPEECH architecture practice responds to some questions from Floornature during a lecture in Italy. Sergey Tchoban, the architect who founded Speech with Sergey Kuznetsov, tells us about his concept of contemporary museums and of the historical perspective in his buildings.
Floornature is an international design and architecture portal with a focus on contemporary architecture, exclusive interviews with great masters of international architecture and the most interesting new developments in the world of architecture.
