Danish Architecture Center


– 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.

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.
