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.

In 2015 the European Architectural Photography Prize architekturbild is awarded for the eleventh time: Since 1995 it has been awarded on a two-yearly basis for a different topic and since 2008 in cooperation with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum Frankfurt (German Architecture Museum) in Frankfurt. From the international submissions, the jury chose the 28 best ones on this year’s topic, which was "neighbourhood".Here, neighbourhood literally means spatial contiguity. And neighbourhood can at the same time be very welcome but also very annoying. In the countryside the nearest neighbour may well live one or two miles away, but in the city only a wall separates them. But not only people, also buildings and, in general terms, things can be neighbours – at a distance or very close to each other, in harmony or in discordance.
