Monocle

Monocle's Architect of the Year

"From her care for the people using her structures to the appreciation of local materials and building methods as well as her ability to seamlessly and sensibly integrate buildings into a host of different contexts. We feel, she embodies what a great contemporary architect should be". Dorte Mandrup is Monocle's Architect of the Year.
"Dorte Mandrup’s architecture is conceived with an unmistakable attitude - an idealism probably quite annoying was it not delivered with an equally unmistakable sense of humour." Finn Juhl Award 2018
"For human beings, the freedom of infinite space is daunting. Environments like the Arctic offer the experience of being surrounded by endless space" - Dorte Mandrup.
