Julia Tarabarina. ​The Contact

The Istituto Centrale per la Grafica in Rome presents Sergei Tchobans exhibition Imprint of the future. Destiny of Piranesis City. The exhibition includes four etchings, based on Roman architectural views of the XVIII century complemented by futuristic insertions, as well as a lot of drawings that investigate the same topic, at times quite expressively. The exhibition poses questions, but does not seem to give any answers. Since going to Rome is pretty problematic now, lets at least examine the pictures.

Julia Tarabarina. ​The City of the Sun

Jointly designed by Sergey Tchoban and Vladimir Plotkin, the VTB Arena Park complex can arguably be considered the perfect experiment on solving the centuries-old controversy between traditional architecture and modernism. The framework of the design code, combined with the creative character of the plastique-based dialogue between the buildings, formed an all-but-perfect fragment of the city fabric.
