Collections

A treasure trove is opened

In the 1980s, backed by a generous exhibition budget, Heinrich Klotz laid the foundations for the Collection of the DAM that now comprises some 200.000 architectural plans, drawings and sketches, 1320 models as well as pictures and items of furniture. Since 1989 this Collection is established in Frankfurt, Hedderichstrasse, not far from the museum.
There is a small selection of drawings of the 18th and 19th century, but the main focus is on 20th century architecture. Some of the most significant holdings include works by Giambattista Piranesi and Gottfried Semper, Louis I. Kahn, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Hans Scharoun, Hans Poelzig and Ernst May, or for example Aldo Rossi, Rem Koolhaas, Frank O. Gehry and Norman Foster. Works of painters such as Ben Willikens, Martin Kippenberger and Christo are also part of the Collection.
The DAM currently holds more than 33 estates, including the archives of Hannes Meyer, Mart Stam and Heinz Bienefeld.

Exhibits of the Collection are presented at some of the DAM venues. The Collection also lends to museums all around the world for exhibition purposes. For visiting the Collection at Hedderichstrasse a special arrangement is necessary.
