"Dorte Mandrup’s architecture is conceived with an unmistakable attitude - an idealism probably quite annoying was it not delivered with an equally unmistakable sense of humour." Finn Juhl Award 2018

Our winning design for a new crafts college

With an elliptical timber structure, the design emphasises the strong community between the different craft traditions and highlights the innovative force they form together.
"For human beings, the freedom of infinite space is daunting. Environments like the Arctic offer the experience of being surrounded by endless space" - Dorte Mandrup.

Monocle's Architect of the Year

"From her care for the people using her structures to the appreciation of local materials and building methods as well as her ability to seamlessly and sensibly integrate buildings into a host of different contexts. We feel, she embodies what a great contemporary architect should be". Dorte Mandrup is Monocle's Architect of the Year.
Striving towards the ultimate synthesis, we combine our firm grasp on reality with the courage to push the boundaries of form and materiality.
