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 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.
The final of the International High-Rise Award (IHA) 2022/23 has been decided: The winner of the competition for the world’s most innovative high-rise is the office tower Quay Quarter Tower in Sydney, Australia by 3XN in Copenhagen.
The prize, unique in its kind and now highly respected, honours the best architecture books of a year. 101 architecture and art book publishers worldwide have responded to the joint call. A specialist jury of external experts and representatives of the DAM selected the ten best architecture books of the year from 264 entries according to criteria such as design, content concept, quality of materials and workmanship, degree of innovation and topicality.

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.

The Deutsches Architekturmuseum has a large and international collection of testimonials of important architects, mostly from the 20th century, which is constantly expanding. Around 50 works archives, prebends and estates, were handed over to the DAM, which owns more than 200,000 plans and drawings, about 35,000 photographs and about 1,300 models, a significant international collection. The architectural model collection with works by Rem Koolhaas, Frei Otto, Rob Krier, Aldo Rossi, Oswald Mathias Ungers a.o., is one of the most important in the world.
