Reclaiming an uncomfortable monument

The Saaleck Workshops near Naumburg in Germany holds a histroy that must not be forgotten. Nor can it define or paralyze the ideas and creativity of future generations. Dorte Mandrup's transformation of this difficult historic site will allow history to be visible while adding new layers representing contemporary ideals of diversity and free thinking.
We're an architecture studio with a firm grasp on reality and a knack for dreaming out loud.
Dorte Mandrup Interns

Interns walking in the footsteps of the grand masters of architecture

This spring, Dorte Mandrup’s 14 interns packed their bags, sharpened their pencils and embarked on a journey through Europe to walk in the footsteps of the Grand Masters of Architecture. Because desk research alone does not make a good architect.
"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
