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. Mandrup​ ​​specialises in landmark projects crossing geography, function and scale. Several UNESCO related cultural​ ​projects underline an expertise in successfully anchoring buildings to unique sites and conveying a rich​ ​cultural history.

Her work has received international acclaim with a portfolio of work including the World​ ​Heritage Projects which includes Wadden Sea Center in Ribe, Denmark, the Icefjord Center, Greenland, the​ ​Trilateral Wadden Sea World Heritage Centre in Wilhemshaven, Germany and the Wadden Sea World​ ​Heritage Centre, Groningen.
