      • Product Description: In the first of a series of collaborations, Sir John Soane’s Museum is exhibiting a selection of the highlights from the newest architectural museum in Europe - Berlin’s Tchoban Foundation, Museum für Architekturzeichnung. Nothern Vision: Master Drawings from the Tchoban Foundation details the exhibition's focus on works by architects rarely seen in British collections, mainly by German and Russian draughtsmen, emphasising the strong cultural and historical links between these two countries. The drawings, which form part of the collection of the Berlin-based Russian Architect Sergei Tchoban, range in date from the late 16th century to modernist work. Included in this book are the earliest known drawing by the great German neo-classicist Karl Friderich Schinkel, a gloriously baroque design by Matthias Daniel Pöppelmann (the architect of Dresden’s Zwinger Palace) and a monumental drawing by Leo von Klenze dating to 1845/6 of the his first design for the imposing gateway in Munich.
