Dorte Mandrup

Dorte Mandrup

Danish architect Dorte Mandrup graduated from Aarhus Architecture School in Denmark in 1991. Eight years later, she founded her studio in Copenhagen, where she continues to be creative director. Studies in both sculpture and natural sciences have influenced her approach to architecture, which has always been ‘hands-on’’, materialising in deep contextual analysis and explorative prototyping. Shape and form constitute the studios ethos – to create spaces that are aesthetically pleasing, contextually relevant, and invite people to engage. Dorte Mandrup has distinguished herself in the architecture field with extraordinary projects in significant places such as the Wadden Sea Centre on the Danish West Coast, Ilulissat Icefjord Centre in Greenland, and the upcoming Exile Museum at Anhalter Bahnhof in Berlin. As a consistent critic, she is well known for her commitment to the development of the architectural practice. She is Vice Chairman of the board of Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, member of the architecture section in Akademi der Künste, Honorary Professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Architecture, Design and Conservation and holds frequent visiting professorships – this year at the renowned Accademia de Architettura de Mendrisio in Switzerland.
