DAM ARCHITECTURAL BOOK AWARD 2016

2016 is the eighth time the Frankfurt Book Fair and Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) have bestowed the International DAM Architectural Book Award. Now highly respected, the prize, the only one of its kind honors the best architectural books in a year. 88 architectural and art book publishers from all over the world accepted the joint invitation to participate. On September 28, 2016 a jury made up of external experts and representatives of DAM met to select the year’s ten best architectural books from 214 entries. They based their decision on criteria such as design, content, quality of material and finishing, innovation, and topicality.

This year the external jury comprised: Werner Huthmacher (photographer), Torsten Köchlin (designer), Karoline Mueller-Stahl (author, lector, MMKoehn Verlag), Christoph Scheffer (arts editor hr-iNFO radio), Martin Seelinger (architect, treasurer of The Society of the Friends of Deutsches Architekturmuseum).

The internal jurors were: Peter Cachola Schmal (Director, DAM), Annette Becker (curator, DAM), Oliver Elser (curator, DAM), Christina Budde (curator, architecture education at DAM \ coordination, DAM Architectural Book Award 2016).
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 2016.

Deutsches Architekturmuseum would like to thank the Society of Friends of Deutsches Architekturmuseum for its generous support.
