The Architecture Forum Aedes has become one of the most successful institutions internationally for communicating architectural culture, urban design and similar topics.

Aedes strives to focus public attention on the cultures of building and architecture and to present and convey architectural visions, sustainable urban concepts, urban planning and landscape architecture. In more than 350 exhibitions and catalogs in the typical Aedes format, renowned architects and current Pritzker-Award winners such as Zaha Hadid, Thom Mayne, Daniel Libeskind, Frank Gehry or Rem Koolhaas presented their work long before acquiring world fame. In addition to 10 to 16 exhibitions per year, the dialog with outside experts and an interested public is supported by simultaneous symposia, series of lectures and discussions.

Aedes was founded in 1980 by Kristin Feireiss and Helga Retzer († 1984) in Berlin-Charlottenburg as the first private architecture gallery in Europe. In memoriam Kongresshalle Berlin was the title of the opening exhibition, which became a groundbreaking success.

In 1985 the architecture forum Aedes West moved to the S-Bahn vaults at Savignyplatz. In 1995, under the name of Aedes East, another branch was opened in Hackesche Höfe in Berlin-Mitte by Kristin Feireiss together with her partner Hans-Jürgen Commerell. In June 2006 Aedes moved to Pfefferberg, the grounds of a former brewery in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. Since 1996, the team is reinforced by Ulla Giesler, cultural scientist.
