2019 Programme Talk

New Now Next: Dorte Mandrup

This year’s series will explore how architecture can remain potent, essential, whilst ‘sustaining’ its agency in an increasingly complicated and diverse world.  Key elements of quality design, new technology, and understanding architects’ responsibility to the environment and active citizenship are vital to its endurance and the 2019 line-up has been selected to reflect this. The line-up of talks taking place throughout the year in Dublin includes some of the most intriguing and inspiring people now from the world of architecture.

​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 headlined at the curated 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​ ​specializes 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.
