Kotchar studied from 1920 to 1926 at Vkhutemas in Moscow from and from 1926 to 1929 at Vkhutein (Higher Art and Technical Institute). From 1932 to 1937, he became a teacher at the Karl Marx Polytechnic Institute in Yerevan. Between 1960 and 1973 Kochar was the chief architect of the Yerevan Project Institute.
