ADAPTIVE ARCHITECTURE

Transforming, adapting, repurposing – existing building stock offers a multitude of opportunities for future-oriented architectural solutions. The DAM is currently also undergoing renovation and has moved into a temporary space at a former office complex on the east side of Frankfurt. This offers the opportunity to devote an exhibition to a selection of international designs displaying the possibilities of versatile transformations and new uses of embodied architectural heritage.

INTERNATIONAL HIGH-RISE AWARD 2022/23

The finalists of this year’s International High-Rise Award (IHA) have been determined. The jury selected five buildings from Asia, Australia, Europe and North America from a total of 34 nominated high-rise buildings from 13 countries.

NICE OUT HERE

With this exhibition, the DAM is a guest at the Hessenpark Open-Air Museum! Since 27 March, visitors are able to view 70 remarkable examples of architecture in Europe that show the qualities that can be discovered in architecture in the countryside.

DAM Ostend

Since 29 January, we have been located in the interim premises of DAM Ostend at Henschelstraße 18! Due to exhibition renovations, DAM Ostend is closed up to and including 15 September. 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.
