Well known for her environmental and societal concerns and Dorte Mandrup has a distinct nonconformist outlook. She is Chair of the prestigious Mies van der Rohe Award 2019 and in 2018 she took part in the international exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia.
Everyday she inspires an international team driven by a devout belief in the possibilities of modern architecture and an experimental curiosity while insisting on outstanding craftsmanship.
