DAM Preis 2021

The DAM Preis for Architecture in Germany 2021 has been awarded to MVRDV and N-V-O NUYKEN VON OEFELE ARCHITETKEN for WERK 12 in Munich. The winning project is the heart of the exhibition “The 25 best buildings in/from Germany”, which can hopefully be visited soon. In the meantime, you can get a first virtual glimpse.

EINFACH GRÜN - Greening the City

Can GREEN in architecture improve the climate in cities, reduce heat generation, lower the release of fine dust particles, and increase people‘s well-being? It’s time to develop architecture with regard to green spaces, to upgrade urban spaces, and to consider GREEN not just in terms of ecological aspects. Learn more about the exhibition EINFACH GRÜN  here…


Wie wird Frankfurt im Jahr 2099 aussehen? Eine spannende Frage. Wir wollen die Zukunft selbst in die Hand nehmen und unsere Stadt der Zukunft bereits heute bauen. Was sind unsere Utopien? Was entsteht, wenn viele verschiedene Visionen zusammentreffen? Gemeinsam mit dem Youtuber Josef Heinrich Bogatzki (aka. TheJoCraft) haben wir die Idee entwickelt, das Spiel Minecraft zu nutzen, um gemeinsam ein urbanistisches Szenario “Frankfurt 2099” zu realisieren.

Kinderstadt - Welten bauen

We invited children to transform our exhibition space on the ground floor into a children’s city together. With paths made of fabric, houses made of cardboard, smoke made of cotton wool and trees made of wood. For themselves and yet together – this is how a city of children’s dreams was created! 

Antike Radikal

Above all in the Rhineland in Central Germany, Krefeld native Heinz Bienefeld (1926–1995) designed and realized numerous ecclesiastical buildings and residential buildings over a period spanning some 40 years. It is not easy to categorize the style of his architecture, which alternates between the classicism of a Palladio and the contemporary modern.

Become a friend

The Gesellschaft der Freunde des Deutschen Architekturmuseums e.V. (Friends of DAM) was founded in 1985 and supports DAM in the realization of its public duties, both in ideal form and materially. Can we count on you too?

One Room. One Building. One City.

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.
