Architecture & Design

Ever since the first skyscrapers were built in 1954, they have been a defining feature of Frankfurt’s cityscape. With the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (German Museum of Architecture), the city has an exhibition venue which presents temporary exhibitions on international architecture as well as projects devoted to Frankfurt-related current or historical themes. The museum, a listed building, with its “house-within-a-house” architecture by Oswald Mathias Ungers, can be read as a symbol of architecture. Another museum remarkable for its architecture is the Museum für Angewandte Kunst (Museum of Applied Art). The modern Richard Meier building, with its large, light-filled spaces, houses works spanning over 5,000 years of applied art and design.
