Architektur Galerie Berlin was founded by architect Ulrich Mueller in 1999 and moved to its present location on Karl-Marx-Allee in Berlin-Mitte in 2006. Within the multifaceted Berlin exhibition scene, Architektur Galerie Berlin serves as a unique venue to examine architecture, distinct from conventional exhibitions. Designs and buildings are presented in conceptual exhibitions developed solely for the gallery. Issues, in terms of content and aesthetic, are often presented in experimental scenography.
In addition to contemporary architecture from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, other international developments in architecture play an important role. An additional focus of work lies on contemporary architecture photography. An important component of our exhibitions are renowned guest critics, who address the public at exhibition openings and moderate our gallery talks.
Exhibitions we developed, such as Architecture Landscape Photography and Architecture + Art – Dialogue were also traveled to renowned institutions including the ETH Zurich, Architecture Biennale Venice and Kunsthalle Wien. We have presented solo exhibitions by well-known architects as Tatiana Bilbao, Gigon/Guyer and Philippe Rahm and showed works by the internationally renowned architecture photographers Iwan Baan, Hélène Binet and Christian Richters.
The gallery maintains lively exchange with numerous leading institutions and an extensive media network. Since 2010 we publish the AAB – Architektur Ausstellungen Berlin calendar about current architecture exhibitions in Berlin. As of 2012 we also publish the website AAD – Architektur Ausstellungen Deutschland which is running under the label AEX – Architecture Exhibitions International since 2014. Since 2018 the gallery organizes the annual event AEW – Architecture Exhibitions Weekend Berlin.
The gallery is located in a listed building on the legendary Karl-Marx-Allee. Access via public transportation (three subway stations away from Alexanderplatz) allows visitors to reach the Architecture Gallery Berlin easily. Experiencing extraordinary architecture, as well as the discussion surrounding it, becomes an indispensable component of one of the world’s most exciting cities’ cultural scene.
In 2016, SATELLIT was added as a complementary space. Located next to the main space, it is dedicated to research and crossover projects as well as lectures, screenings, and public debates.
