Our founder and Creative Director Dorte Mandrup has been elected member of one of Europe’s oldest and most important cultural institutions. She will be one of nine new members to join the architecture section of Akademie der Künste, including the former Senatsbaudirektorin of Berlin Regula Lüscher and the renowned Vietnamese architect and editor Anh-Linh Ngo.

“I am deeply honoured to have been appointed member of Akademie der Künste and I look forward to participate in the discussions with my colleagues in the architecture section. With more than 300 years history, the academy is a leading national institution with a strong dedication towards promoting and developing the arts – not only in Germany but across the international art scene. It is quite unique that the academy admits members from all over the world and thus welcomes a great diversity of perspectives and insights that transcends borders and enriches the cultural debate”, says Dorte Mandrup.

The Akademie der Künste currently has 426 members in its six art sections, all of which have contributed significantly to the art and culture of their time. In the architecture sections, Dorte Mandrup will join respected colleagues like Peter Zumthor, Norman Foster, Daniel Liebeskind, Shigeru Ban, Renzo Piano and Anne Lacaton.
