Architecture prizes

DAM Architectural Book Award

DAM Architectural Book Award 202

In 2024, the Frankfurt Book Fair and Deutsche Architekturmuseum are once again inviting all art and architecture book publishers worldwide to participate. The submissions are evaluated by a rotating expert jury made up of representatives of Deutsche Architekturmuseum and external experts according to criteria such as design, conception, material and processing quality, degree of innovation and topicality. All art and architecture book publishers from Germany and abroad can take part.

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 Frankfurt Book Fair.

Ever since the DAM Architectural Book Award was presented for the first time in 2009, it has experienced a steadily growing global response. This year’s Architecture Book Prize is also deliberately aimed at an international field of participants.

This year’s guest country at the Frankfurt Book Fair will be ITALY. Therefore, the jury of DAM Architectural Bookaward will additionally determine the most appealing Italian submission.

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