DEUTSCHES ARCHITEKTUR JAHRBUCH 2018 / German Architecture Annual 2018
a cura di Yorck Förster - Christina Gräwe - Peter Cachola Schmal
The German Architecture Yearbook, published by the Deutsches Architekturmusuem (DAM) in Frankfurt am Main, has been documenting the current state of construction in Germany for almost 40 years. The yearbook presents the shortlist of 22 buildings from Germany in meetings of well-known authors, which was determined by a jury for the DAM Award for architecture in Germany in 2018. Curators of the museum as well as renowned architects and architectural critics surveyed a field of around one hundred nominations for the year. In addition to the special tribute to the winner of the DAM Prize, the 2018 edition also details the shortlist of finalists. As an exceptional project, the Elbphilharmonie is excluded from the shortlist and has a special mention in the yearbook. A separate chapter is dedicated to the buildings of German architects abroad, of which two buildings are presented. On the one hand, two essays address the Hamburg model of land acquisition for the strengthening of construction communities and, on the other, the current boom in theater and music architectures.
