DAM Architectural Book Award 2020

October 21, 2020 – November 1, 2020

The Frankfurt Book Fair and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) are presenting the jointly initiated International DAM Architectural Book Award for the twelfth time. The DAM would like to thank the Society of Friends of the DAM for its generous support of the prize.

The ten prize winners this year are:

  • Vokabular des Zwischenraums. Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten von Rückzug und Interaktion in dichten Wohngebieten / Park Books
  • Quirino de Giorgio An Architect’s Legacy / Park Books

The prize, unique in its kind and now highly respected, honours the best architecture books of a year. 101 architecture and art book publishers worldwide have responded to the joint call. A specialist jury of external experts and representatives of the DAM selected the ten best architecture books of the year from 274 entries according to criteria such as design, content concept, quality of materials and workmanship, degree of innovation and topicality.

The wide range of topics and the high standard of the entries presented the jury with an enormous challenge. For this reason the jurors once again decided not only to pick ten prize winners, but also to select a further ten entries for the Shortlist of the DAM Architectural Book Award 2020.
