EINFACH GRÜN - Greening the City

Can GREEN in architecture improve the climate in cities, reduce heat generation, lower the release of fine dust particles, and increase people‘s well-being? It’s time to develop architecture with regard to green spaces, to upgrade urban spaces, and to consider GREEN not just in terms of ecological aspects. Learn more about the exhibition EINFACH GRÜN  here…


Wie wird Frankfurt im Jahr 2099 aussehen? Eine spannende Frage. Wir wollen die Zukunft selbst in die Hand nehmen und unsere Stadt der Zukunft bereits heute bauen. Was sind unsere Utopien? Was entsteht, wenn viele verschiedene Visionen zusammentreffen? Gemeinsam mit dem Youtuber Josef Heinrich Bogatzki (aka. TheJoCraft) haben wir die Idee entwickelt, das Spiel Minecraft zu nutzen, um gemeinsam ein urbanistisches Szenario “Frankfurt 2099” zu realisieren.

Kinderstadt - Welten bauen

We invited children to transform our exhibition space on the ground floor into a children’s city together. With paths made of fabric, houses made of cardboard, smoke made of cotton wool and trees made of wood. For themselves and yet together – this is how a city of children’s dreams was created!

One Room. One Building. One City.

The DAM for kids and young people

Architecture is not self-explanatory. The significance of architecture merits interpretation and comment. Be it searching for traces in the urban space, a journey through time in the permanent exhibition “From primitive hut to sky-scraper”, or as a master builder on the LEGO building site — the aim of the museum’s educational events is to help people discover the world that’s on the doorstep, finetune their (aesthetic) perception and understand the language of architecture.
