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.

Does permanence matter? Ephemeral urbanism: cities in constant flux
14.09.2017 - 18.03.2018

How long-term should urban planning be? Munich’s Oktoberfest, the festival of Kumbh Mela in India (the largest pilgrimage in the world), the Burning Man Festival in Nevada, and scores of other major events demonstrate that flexible architectural structures are perennially deployed around the globe to provide temporary or medium-term shelter and amenities, often to enormous crowds. Such temporary structures fulfil a range of functional tasks and are used in religious and cultural festivals or can take the shape of military camps, refugee camps, or even temporary mining towns. The exhibition has been conceived based on a long-term study by Rahul Mehrotra at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and Felipe Vera of the Centro de Ecologia Paisaje y Urbanismo in Santiago. The show traces a global phenomenon that has become increasingly topical given today’s current climate of mass migration streams.

Flats, Flats, Flats! Housing in Bavaria 1918 -2018
16.02.2018 - 13.05.2018

The topic of housing development is as relevant today as it was 100 years ago. This exhibition forms part of the centenary celebrations marking the founding of the Free State of Bavaria and places a special focus on the evolution of residential architecture in Bavaria in the context of political decisions and actions, and against the backdrop of economic and social factors. The exhibition will address the ways in which concepts of space and architectural solutions reflect specific living conditions, and will also look at construction and housing programs – in particular the promotion of social housing in Bavaria and the attempt to boost the living conditions of a broad sector of society. By looking at a range of building styles – from detached homes to small housing estates and low-rise ‘Zeilenbau‘ developments, through to large-scale housing estates – light is shed not just on urban development, but also on the more rural regions of Bavaria.

African Mobilities. This is not a refugee camp exhibition
26.04.2018 - 19.08.2018

African Mobilities is not concerned exclusively with the architecture of the refugee camp. Instead, it seeks to explore how cities and towns might become sites of refuge for African populations on the move, while simultaneously reckoning with the ways in which colonial geographies of extraction are enfolded within seemingly new zones of resource extraction. The show aims to rethink the geography of African migrations and the challenges and opportunities they pose for doing architecture and urbanism differently: through an exploration of architectures at the intersection of migration, displacement and digital technology. The exhibition connects fourteen diverse locations through workshops, commissioned projects and master classes: Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Addis Ababa, Munich, Luanda, Abidjan, Lagos, New York, Dakar, Nairobi, London, Lubumbashi, and Praia. It is based on a trans-national and interdisciplinary approach to architectural research and design, showing both current work and creative research-driven work that offer future possible urban scenarios and architectural prototypes, brought about by a world in Motion.

Königsschlösser und Fabriken. Ludwig II und die Architektur
26.09.2018 - 13.01.2019

This exhibition, which marks the 150th anniversary of the TU Munich, sheds light on the architectural history of the Kingdom of Bavaria during the reign of Ludwig II (1864-1886). The exhibition provides the first ever survey of the buildings constructed under his aegis, and of the projects that went unrealised. The focus is not just on the world-famous royal palaces and the spectacular theatre projects which Ludwig II personally commissioned, but also on the public and private architectural developments of his time. These include prominent buildings such as the Munich Rathaus (Town Hall), the Munich Academy of Fine Arts and the ‘Bayreuth Festival Theatre‘, but also buildings which are less well-known, but are architecturally outstanding and of cultural-historical significance, such as the original building of the ‘New Polytechnic School’ (now TU) in Munich, the synagogues in Munich and Nuremberg, the factory buildings of the Augsburg textile quarter and the ephemeral architecture created for the ‘Bayerische Landes-, Industrie-, Gewerbe- und Kunstausstellung‘, held in 1882 in Nuremberg.
