DAM Architectural Book Award

DAM Architectural Book Award 2022

Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) and the Frankfurter Buchmesse  are this year again asking for entries to be submitted for the DAM Architectural Book Award 2022. All art and architectural book publishers worldwide are invited to do so. A varying jury comprising DAM internal jurors as well as external experts will judge the submissions according to design, concept, quality in terms of material and finishing, level of innovation and topicality.

Even in this era of growing competition through new media and communication methods books on architecture still remain the basic architectural medium. Identifying the best architectural books published in the current year by way of this competition and presenting them to architecture enthusiasts is thus a fundamental task of the DAM Architectural Book Award. As an honorary award it does not involve any award money. The prize winners are being presented at the Frankfurter Buchmesse.

The DAM Architectural Book Award was initiated in 2009 and ever since it has been met with increasing response. So this year’s DAM Architectural Book Award will consciously open up gain to an international range of participants.

The DAM would like to thank the Society of Friends of the DAM for its generous support of the prize.
