The buildings nominated for the International High-Rise Award 2024/25 have now been announced: they have been selected from more than 1,000 new high-rises worldwide dating from the past two years. 


The traditional Lego building site fills the DAM auditorium with thousands of red, blue, yellow, black and white Lego bricks and offers children from the age of 4 (and parents and grandparents too, by the way) every opportunity to give free rein to their building fantasies. Those who simply want to build will be able to do so; all other Lego builders can take part in changing themed competitions. Prizes are awarded for the best buildings.

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.
