CONDITIONS – Dorte Mandrup in Warsaw
Dorte Mandrup is an outstanding figure in the world of architecture. Her designs constantly surprise with breaking architectural conventions and gain recognition from critics and users. In 1999, she founded her own architecture studio – Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter – which, thanks to its uncompromising nature, won the international competition for the design of Icefjord Center. The project is to be developed by 2021 in the Ilulissat region of Greenland, which is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In 2019, Dorte Mandrup was also honored with the Berlin Art Prize 2019 for a clear concept and independent attitude that distinguishes her in the world of architecture.
Other realisations by Dorte Mandrup’s studio include Amager Children’s Culture House, he Crystal – Sport and Culture House, Wadden See Center and Thy National Park Center. www.dortemandrup.dk
