Founded as recently as late 2009, the Tchoban Foundation has already achieved much. The founder is a passionate draftsman and a collector of historic architectural drawings.
But where can drafting skills be acquired today? In the 21st century, few architects attempt to persuade clients of their design abilities via sketches or perspective drawings. For most younger architects, the ability to produce hand drawings is simply not an issue. Yet the development and training of formal and proportional inventiveness still proceeds via ideas which flow through the drawing hand. Well into the 20th century, talent and training were the pillars upon which the art of drafting rested. It is at this point that the Tchoban Foundation intervenes. The foundation plans to promote classical training in draftsmanship among talented young architects, and will be making the founder's considerable collection available for study purposes.

A second explicit aim of the foundation, however, is to present the imaginative and emotionally-charged world of the architectural drawing to a broad public through events and exhibitions.
