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 buildings nominated for the International Highrise Award (IHP) 2020 have now been selected: Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) has chosen them from over 1,000 new high-rise buildings construed over the past two years worldwide. The five shortlisted finalists from this group will be announced in September. The winner of the International Highrise Award will be presented on October 29, 2020 in the Paulskirche in Frankfurt/Main.
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.
