Practical information

“Joyful Architecture – European Architectural Photography 2019”
5 May  — 1 September , 2019
Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM)
Schaumainkai 43, Frankfurt am Main
Germany

 


The competition focuses on the built environment and its photographic and artistic exploration, and always has a predefined motto. The theme for 2019 is “Joyful Architecture”. Normally, architecture is characterized by terms such as utility, urban contextualization, economic feasibility, sustainability, and aesthetics. But we rarely think of architecture as playful amd fun. This year’s prize invited photographers to show their views of joyful architecture — open to many interpretations.
