Architektur Galerie Berlin was founded in 1999 by architect Ulrich Müller. Within the multifaceted Berlin exhibition scene, the gallery serves as a unique venue to examine architecture, distinct from conventional exhibitions. With six exhibitions every year showcasing influential architects, the gallery delivers the highest level of professional communication about architecture. Designs and buildings are presented in conceptual exhibitions developed solely for the gallery.
Gallery has presented solo exhibitions by architects as Caruso St John, Tatiana Bilbao, Gigon/Guyer, Anupama Kundoo, MVRDV, and Philippe Rahm and showed works by architecture photographers Iwan Baan, Hélène Binet, Jan Bitter, and Christian Richters. Another focus lies on the presentation of works by students and emerging architects from Harvard GSD, EPF Lausanne, and Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, among others. The exhibition program is accompanied by book releases, screenings and lectures.
Architektur Galerie Berlin maintains lively exchange with numerous institutions and international relevant curators. Since 2010, the gallery has published bimonthly calendar AAB – Architektur Ausstellungen Berlin, which highlights current architecture exhibitions in Berlin. In 2014 it added the website AEX – Architecture Exhibitions International. In 2018, the gallery initiated the annual AEW – Architecture Exhibitions Weekend, which is the only one event of its kind worldwide.
The gallery is located in a listed building on the legendary Karl-Marx-Allee (former Stalinallee) three subway stations from Alexanderplatz. Access via public transportation allows visitors to reach it easily.
