– An Architecture Exhibition
by Dorte Mandrup

Exhibition period

March 22 – May 26 2019

In Spring 2019, we open the doors to one of the greatest Danish architects of our time: Dorte Mandrup.

In a tactile and seductive universe, you’ll be introduced to Dorte Mandrup’s amazing architecture by the Wadden Sea in Denmark and the Ilulissat Icefjord in Greenland – both featured on the prestigious list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Experience how architecture is shaped by unique natural landscapes.

Wadden Sea Centre, Ribe, Denmark

Thatching strikes back! The Wadden Sea Centre is a celebration of traditional craftsmanship and a new cultural icon on the Danish west coast.

The Icefjord Centre in Ilulissat, Greenland, showcases climate change

Even though last summer was alarmingly warm by Danish standards, climate change seems big and abstract. But in Ilulissat it is very concrete. Here you can clearly see the ice melting.

Why Dorte Mandrup is noteworthy

This year, one of the greatest architects of our day, Dorte Mandrup, is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her Copenhagen studio.

Wilhelmshaven, Germany

At Wilhelmshaven, four floors of elegant glass float atop a robust WW2 bunker. A practical and aesthetic application giving way for the bunker to act as the foundation for what at night becomes a shimmering and open lighthouse for the area.
