DAM Preis 2024

The DAM Preis 2024 goes to GUSTAV DÜSING & MAX HACKE for the STUDIERENDENHAUS OF THE TU BRAUNSCHWEIG: The jury was particularly impressed by the wonderfully light, open student house on the campus of the Technical University.

DAM Ostend

The Museum am Schaumainkai is currently closed for construction work. We are currently located in the interim quarters DAM Ostend at Henschelstraße 18. We are looking 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 or mobile in schools, in the city and on the web – equipped with ideas and material, we will visit you wherever you need us.


The DAM reallaboratory “Living Room Hauptwache” enlivened Frankfurt’s city center as part of the model project “Post-Corona City” in the fall of 2022 and is active there again this year.


A cooperation project of the Wüstenrot Foundation and the DAM.

In the coming months, previously unknown documents from the founding phase (1979 to 1989) will be brought to light and commented on on the research blog.

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.
