European Architectural Photography Prize 2023

Architekturbild, the European Architectural Photography Prize, has been awarded on a two-yearly basis since 1995. Numerous synonyms are offered for the term "stopgap", such as replacement, emergency solution, transitional or interim solution. We all know such expedients from the private environment as well as from public life. The 28 awarded series of EAP 2023 show stopgaps that make us smile tolerantly or thoughtful, they discover imaginative solutions, but they can also point out to shortcomings.

Joyful Architecture – European Architectural Photography Prize 2019
architekturbild, the European Architectural Photography Prize, has been awarded on a two-yearly basis since 1995. Since 2003, the prize has been awarded by architekturbild e.V., a non-profit organisation and since 2008 in cooperation with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt, and since 2016 with the Bundesstiftung Baukultur, Potsdam/Berlin. The theme for 2019 is "Joyful Architecture". We rarely think of architecture as comforting, fun and playful. The book therefore presents examples of architecture that playfully and positively impact the built environment and its inhabitants. These examples can be understated or clichéd, autonomous or in dialogue with their surroundings, hidden or obvious. High quality catalogue on the international trevelling exhibition, starting in the German Architecture Museum (DAM) on May 3rd 2019.Search inside on

Waiting – Menschen an Haltestellen. People in Transit.
Since 1978, Dieter Leistner has been photographing people waiting at public transport stops throughout the world. Whether in Asia or Europe, South America or the Indian Ocean, in the countryside or in town, in capitalism or socialism – Leistner captures those waiting subtly and with a professional perspective. He opens up a cosmos of instantaneous shots with their own particular aura: sometimes cheerful, sometimes melancholic, sometimes bustling, sometimes lonesome. The observer is always part of the composition, recognising themselves in some of those waiting. Dieter Leistner is a professor of photography at the University of Applied Sciences in Würzburg and works internationally as a lecturer. With numerous exhibitions he is among the most well-known contemporary German photographers. His photos have won multiple awards and been published widely. Observations from more than 40 years: A panopticon of waiting people throughout the world at transport stops from Europe to New Zealand.  Search inside on

Grenzen | Borders
European Architectural Photography Prize 2017  architekturbild, the European Architectural Photography Prize, has been awarded on a two-yearly basis since 1995. This time the subject is "Borders".Whether in the sense of opening or closing, of including or excluding or as definitions of geographical or (urban) spatial areas, borders are physically present and clearly recognizable or subtly noticeable, but always perceived as either protecting or deterring. In the context of the European Architectural Potography Prize 2017 we by no means focus on the negative interpretations of this term but rather on the photographic-aristic involvment with our built environment.
