As a location and meeting-point for everyone interested in architecture, the TUM's Architecture Museum housed in the Pinakothek der Moderne since 2002 offers a wide and varied program of rotating exhibitions supplemented by publications, guided tours, discussion forums, lectures and other events.
Due to its unique status as Germany's only university institution with archives and exhibition rooms, the Architecture Museum unites collections, tuition and research. The intensive interdisciplinary study of the various topics addresses well-researched specialist exhibitions with a high informative content. The museum collaborates with other departments or universities and takes advantage of the huge potential of Technische Universität, which can then be showcased to interested members of the public in the "display window" of the Pinakothek der Moderne. Numerous exhibits, models and animations were created for exhibitions in seminars or in the university's laboratories and workshops where the students worked with enormous enthusiasm.
The new-style concept of the Pinakothek der Moderne, where architecture can be presented and communicated to a wide section of the general public on an equal footing and in a symbiotic coordination with all the visual and applied arts departments, has evolved to become a successful model of international renown.
Architects and all architecture aficionados will find a forum at the Architecture Museum where they can obtain further information and exchange ideas and views. Thanks to its extensive range, the museum has become a meeting-place for those involved from all sections of architecture and has accordingly achieved a fantastically wide appeal which continues to show an upward trend.
