Paulskirche

In the hope that Frankfurt would become the new German capital, the Paulskirche was rebuilt as a potential seat for the parliament in 1947, having been severely damaged by bombing raids.

September 7, 2019 – February 16, 2020

In Norwegian landscapes

A tradition in Norwegian architecture emphasizes tactile and spatial experiences and reflects the relationship between buildings and landscape. Sensitivity to place, experimental tectonics and profound attention to detail characterize the tradition.

September 14, 2019 – January 19, 2020

Houses of the year 2019

On September 25 the winner of this year’s competition Houses of the Year have been honored; Callwey Verlag has awarded the prize together with the DAM, Informationszentrum Beton and the media partners Baumeister, Atrium, Ideales Heim, n-tv and Neue Zürcher Zeitung.

The Playground Project

Between 1950 and 1980 the playground was a creative laboratory. In the cities of the Global North, innovative, insane and exciting projects emerged: Landscape architects, artists, activists and citizens wanted to provide children with the best place for play and try out a new approach to community and city at the same time.

The DAM for kids and young people

Architecture is not self-explanatory. The significance of architecture merits interpretation and comment. Be it searching for traces in the urban space, a journey through time in the permanent exhibition “From primitive hut to sky-scraper”, or as a master builder on the LEGO building site — the aim of the museum’s educational events is to help people discover the world that’s on the doorstep, finetune their (aesthetic) perception and understand the language of architecture.
