Dorte Mandrup awarded Architect of the Year
Last Friday Dorte Mandrup was awarded Architect of the Year by AW Architektur & Wohnen.
"Dorte Mandrup was appointed AW Architekt des Jahres 2019. She is our eighth award winner. The award honors her office for its work creating intelligent multipurpose architecture based on intensive analysis considering local conditions and the needs of future users. Her work is always focused on the well-being of humans.
It ranges from innovative neighborhood centers and a broad range of cultural buildings, a supermarket overlaid with a sports hall and again apartments on the rooftop, housing complexes as well as transformations of historical and industrial buildings into modern, contemporary spaces. Her analytical and fact-based way of working always ends in spectacular results."
From the jury statement by Jörn Kengelbach, Editor in Chief AW Architektur & Wohnen.
