The German Architecture Annual, edited by the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) in Frankfurt am Main, has been documenting current architectural events in Germany for almost 40 years. Contributions by renowned authors present the shortlist of 22 buildings as selected by a jury for the 2019 DAM Prize for Architecture in Germany. Curators of the museum, architects, and architectural critics visited around 100 nominated buildings. The 2019 edition offers a detailed portrait of a smaller selection of finalists along with an in-depth appraisal of this year’s winner. Moreover, three buildings are presented in a separate chapter dedicated to projects by German architects abroad. Finally, the annual presents two essays: the first explores the history of the ‘Neue Altstadt’ project in Frankfurt am Main and the debate surrounding the Dom-Römer area, while the second delves into the political conditions underlying the exceptional planning processes in Singapore.
