News from the ifa
The recent challenges of refugee movements and migration ask for both quick and long-term solutions by policy makers and civil society. Culture can make a major contribution in coping with these challenges and in integrating the refugees streaming into Europe. Several projects and publications of the ifa deal with these issues.
The catalogue of the ifa-exhibition "In a class of its own" has been selected for the Shortlist of the DAM Architectural Book Awards 2015. Together with the Frankfurt Book Fair, Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) honors the best architectural books of the year. Challenged by the high standard of the 178 entries the jury not only selected the ten prize winners, but also further ten entries for the Shortlist.
