The founder of the award winning Copenhagen based practice, Dorte Mandrup, will speak about their ‘hands on’ approach to design and her commitment to improving the culture of architectural practice.
Established in 1999, Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter have completed a number of internationally acclaimed projects including the multi-award Wadden Sea Centre (2017), located in Denmark’s largest UNESCO World Heritage site, and the IKEA Hubhult which became Scandinavia’s most environmentally friendly office building when it was completed in 2015.
Alongside leading the practice, Dorte was the Chair of the 2019 Mies van der Rohe Awards and is also currently the Adjunct Professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and holds visiting professorships at architecture schools across the world, including Cornell University College of Architecture, Art and Planning.
The evening will begin with a lecture by Dorte Mandrup and will be followed by an opportunity for questions from the audience. The event will take place in the Jarvis Hall at 66 Portland Place.
