The European Architectural Photography Prize has been awarded every two years since 1995, and since 2003 has been organized by architekturbild e.v. Cooperation partners are Deutsches Architekturmseum (DAM) and the Federal Foundation for Baukultur. In 2023 the first prize has been awarded to Nicole Keller & Oliver Schumacher from Hamburg.


Das DAM-Reallabor „Wohnzimmer Hauptwache“ belebte als Teil des Modellprojekts „Post-Corona-Stadt“ im Herbst 2022 die Frankfurter Innenstadt und ist auch in diesem Jahr dort aktiv.


Die Frankfurter Paulskirche gilt als eines der wichtigsten Demokratiedenkmale Deutschlands. US-Präsident John F. Kennedy betonte hier während seiner Deutschlandreise 1963, dass „kein anderes Gebäude in Deutschland begründeten Anspruch auf den Ehrentitel der ‚Wiege der deutschen Demokratie‘ erheben“ kann.


Ein Kooperationsprojekt der Wüstenrot Stiftung und des DAM

Auf dem Forschungs-Blog werden in den kommenden Monaten bisher unbekannte Dokumente aus der Gründungsphase (1979 bis 1989) ans Licht geholt und kommentiert.

DAM Ostend

Currently we can be found in the interim quarter DAM Ostend at Henschelstraße 18! Up to and including July 2, the exhibition PROVISORIUM I STOPGAP for the European Architecture Photography Award architekturbild 2023 is on display. 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, 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.

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.
