Music and Arts at TUM

The achievements of our scientists are great works of art, indeed – inspirational, creative and highly skilled craftsmanship. So it is not surprising that our Architecture Museum is part of Munich’s Pinakothek der Moderne art museum. TUM even contributes to the the 13th edition of documenta. And that’s not all: Keen musicians can join one of Munich’s numerous academic choirs or orchestras. And Students at the Faculty for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology students get to produce their own 3D films – another example of how art can unfold from technology.

  

  

The TUM Architecture Museum in the Pinakothek der Moderne is one of the best of its kind in the world. It is both an archive and an exhibition, combining collection, teaching and research – a unique position as a university institution in Germany.

  • Exhibitions: Numerous exhibits are produced in seminars or in the laboratories and studios of the TUM. The teaching collection for the education and training of architects forms a bridge with the public on questions of urban development, cities of the future and art and design in construction.
  • The collection comprises around 500,000 outline concepts, drafts, plans and sketches, together with sections and architectural surveys by more than 500 architects since 1750. In addition, there are architectural models and extensive collections of photographs and written documents.
  • The research museum stages changing exhibitions of historical and current items of architecture. Guided tours, discussion forums, lectures and other events open up architecture to an interested public.
