An examination of the work and vision of world-renowned architect Sergei Tchoban, Architekt BDA. With offices in Berlin and Moscow, Sergei Tchoban designs, plans, and builds internationally. His most famous projects include the Federation Tower in Moscow, the DomAquaree in Berlin, and the master plan for the European Embankment project in St Petersburg. Despite vigorous activities in new development, Sergei Tchoban is strongly influenced by his origins, and his fondness for historical construction and traditional European cities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sergei Tchoban was born in Russia and works in Germany; as an architect, he is strongly influenced by both traditions. This book documents his work. It will be useful to US readers because Tchoban works in a modernist-inspired idiom; while the style is not currently popular among US architects, the best modernist buildings are internationally iconic and the style that built New York City and Chicago remains extremely popular with the public. Tchoban's focus is on finding a modernist-influenced vocabulary that is highly buildable now and reads as clean and contemporary, while preserving a focus on materials (stone, tile, brick, bronze), facades with windows, architectural detail, and modernism's mix of strong blocks and sensuous curves. The book begins with a short text. The majority of the book is project-by-project descriptions with floor plans and good clear full-page photographs of the finished building exteriors and interiors. The projects include corporate buildings, retail and mixed-use centers, a hotel, an art gallery, a cinema, renovations of public buildings, and residential complexes. Book News, Inc., October 2013
