DAM ARCHITECTURAL BOOK AWARD 2010

Even in an age of growing competition from new media, architectural books are still a focal point of information about architecture. Which is why, following the successful premiere last year, Frankfurt Book Fair and Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) bestowed the international DAM Architectural Book Award again in 2010. Around 90 art and architectural book publishers from around the world heeded the joint call by Deutsches Architekturmuseum and the Book Fair, and for the first time entries were submitted from China, Brazil, and Mexico. A jury comprising DAM representatives and external experts judged the submissions according to categories such as design, content, quality of material and finishing, innovation and topicality. The prize-giving ceremony took place on October 6 in the library at Deutsches Architekturmuseum

The Deutsches Architekturmuseum wants to thank the Society of Friends of the DAM e.V. for the generous support.
