Supporting friends. Gladly.

We support what is close to our hearts: outstanding architecture.
The Gesellschaft der Freunde des Deutschen Architekturmuseums e.V. (Friends of DAM) was founded in 1985 and supports DAM in the realization of its public duties, both in ideal form and materially. Can we count on you too?

What we concretely support. And we are sure you would like to as well.

High-quality exhibitions and accompanying programs, which earn DAM great international renown, always need support. As do top grade catalogs and children’s books on the topic of architecture. We support all this financially, as we do the expansion of the extensive DAM collection through the purchase of estates, drawings, and models.

The Friends of DAM recently supported these three exhibitions:

Greening the City

Supporting kids.

Learning how to experience architecture.
Aesthetic perception develops when we are kids. For this reason, DAM has a wide-ranging educational program for kids of all ages: from workshops, project days in schools and intercultural exchange between nature, culture, and architecture to themed guided tours in the Museum. The further training of educators is an important element of our work with adolescents. We provide great support for all this, after all we want to arouse children’s interest in architecture and lay the foundations for kids as adults being able to promote the built environment.

Here are some impressions of our most recent visits:

Conditions of participation
The FREUNDE VOR ORT (local friends) series of events is for registered members of Gesellschaft der Freunde des DAM only. Attendance is only possible on presentation of valid ID! The number of participants is limited, the date of receipt of registration by e-mail to m.andreas@communetwork.net is decisive. Attendance of the guided tour is at your own risk, the organizer does not accept any responsibility.

Our exclusive auctions.

Take big names home with you.
Our auctions have become famous throughout the city. Renowned national and international architects, artists, and photographers regularly make available to us sketches, watercolors, etchings, models, and photographs, which you can buy at our auctions. Why not take home, for example, a genuine David Chipperfield, Herzog & de Meuron or Richard Meier, while at the same time supporting DAM. The more we earn, the more we can support and do good deeds.
