DAM ARCHITECTURAL BOOK AWARD 2011

Even in an age of growing competition from new media, architectural books are still a focal point of information about architecture. Which is why Frankfurt Book Fair and Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) bestowed for the third time the international DAM Architectural Book Award in 2011. Around 55 art and architectural book publishers from around the world heeded the joint call by Deutsches Architekturmuseum and the Book Fair. A jury comprising DAM representatives and external experts selected the prize winners out of 160 submissions according to categories such as design, content, quality of material and finishing, innovation and topicality.

The prize-giving ceremony took place on October 12 in the library at Deutsches Architekturmuseum; all the prize winners are to be presented at Frankfurt Book Fair in Hall 4.1, at the Deutsches Architekturmuseum booth , Q552.

More information on the Architectural Book Award 2012 will be available from April 2012.

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