The architecture museum of the Technical University of Munich is located in the Modern Pinakothek and shows changing exhibits on topics in architectural history as well as modern developments. The broad horizon of exhibits is supplemented by a schedule of numerous accompanying activities. The holdings include about a half million drawings by 700 architects, 100,000 photographs, 500 models as well as numerous designs, engravings, computer animations, and prints. The oldest preserved drawings are from the 16th century. The oldest model is from the 17th century. Highlights of the collection are numerous works of Balthasar Neumann, Friedrich von Gärtner, Leo von Klenze, Erich Mendelsohn, Erik Gunnar Asplund, Le Corbusier, Günter Behnisch, and Peter Zumthor. Thanks to the continual new acquisitions, the architecture museum today takes care of the largest special exhibit for architecture in Germany.

The Architectural Museum was established as an architectonic teaching collection along with the founding of the present Technical University in 1868. Between the World Wars it lost its scholarly status and became more of an archival and research center. After the damage of the Second World War the treasures of the architectural collection spent many years in storage. In 1975 the collection changed to an archive with the role of a museum to make the holdings accessible to the public. Since it had no exhibit space of its own, the collection operated in cooperation with other museums, especially with the City Museum of Munich. The Architecture Museum stands in the Modern Pinakothek since 2002. The museum serves as a meeting point for those interested in architecture and offers a broad spectrum of programs with its rotating exhibits complemented by publications, expert tours, discussion groups, lectures, and other events.

Out There. Landscape Architecture on Global Terrain
27.04.2017 - 20.08.2017

In the public imagination, landscape architecture seems still to be determined by the desire to plan for harmony between the burgeoning advance of cities, on the one hand, and nature, on the other. But this idea ceased long ago to reflect the current state of a discipline that, in the face of the radical transformation of our planet, has since evolved in a more analytic, critical direction. The premise of the exhibition ‘out there’ is that there is basically no corner of the earth left in which the effects of urbanization, massive exploitation of fossil fuels, growing mobility, and unchecked pollution of air, soil, and water are not felt. The exhibition presents ten illustrative cases from across the world that vividly portray the interaction between city and surrounding environment, water cycles, and conditions both local and global. From Casablanca via Madrid and Changde to Kigali and Medellin: these research projects analyze highly complex situations, in order to begin to develop approaches for transformation. The exhibition aims to give the public a deeper understanding of the changing concepts and strategies of landscape architecture in the present, and at the same time, to represent its growing importance for the future.
