From primitive hut to skyscraperA journey through architectural history
The DAM’s permanent exhibition on the second floor of the museum boasts Germany’s most comprehensive collection of panoramic models on architectural history. 24 largescale models impressively illustrate the evolution of the environment as shaped by humans.
The Frankfurt Book Fair and Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) are presenting the jointly initiated international DAM Architectural Book Award for the fifteenth time. The prize, unique in its kind and now highly regarded, honors the best architectural books of a year. 102 architectural and art book publishers from all over the world accepted the joint invitation to participate.
Our thoughts are with the victims of these cowardly acts of violence and with their families. Nothing can justify the excesses of violence against the Israeli population.
The City of Tel Aviv-Yafo is the twin city of Frankfurt am Main. For several years, the Liebling Haus - The White City Center is a close partner of the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM). We stand by the side of the people there and throughout Israel.
In 2023, the Frankfurt Book Fair and Deutsche Architekturmuseum are once again inviting all art and architecture book publishers worldwide to participate.
The submissions are evaluated by a rotating expert jury made up of representatives of Deutsche Architekturmuseum and external experts according to criteria such as design, conception, material and processing quality, degree of innovation and topicality. All art and architecture book publishers from Germany and abroad can take part.
The DAM Preis for Architecture in Germany 2023 has been awarded to AUER WEBER for the Extension of Starnberg District Office.
The jury was very taken with Auer Weber’s extension to the Starnberg District Office. That said, in the final analysis it was the harmonious interaction of the existing structure and the extension that is so convincing.
Plan. Work. City.The DAM for kids and young people
The DAM’s education program offers children, schoolchildren, and adults access to architectural topics in a playful and practical way. We want to accompany children and young people into the world of architecture, and that begins on their own doorstep. The diversity of the topic makes it possible to connect to the lifeworld of our young guests and to introduce them to building culture and design possibilities.
