Available to watch – 2019 NewNowNext | Dorte Mandrup


As our first speaker for NewNowNext 2019 we invited nonconformist Danish architect Dorte Mandrup to speak at the Royal Irish Academy.

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.

This series of talks is curated by the IAF, sponsored by Arup and supported by the Royal Irish Academy.
