DAM Ostend

From 16 September, the exhibition ADAPTIVE ARCHITECTURE. Building Upon the Existing. We look forward to your visit.

Plan. Werk. Stadt.

Even building culture education does not have to be dispensed with in times of DAM reconstruction! Whether on site in the interim DAM Ostend quarter, at the Lego construction site in the Orangerie in Günthersburgpark or mobile in schools, in the city and on the web – equipped with ideas and material, we will visit you wherever you need us.

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.
