The Danish architect Dorte Mandrup is one of the most aesthetic originals as well as one of the most socially committed such of her generation. Down to the very smallest detail, her buildings communicate both with the users as well as the public space around them. Dorte Mandrup never builds without taking a stand. Nor is she ever dull. Her special relationship to reality is evident in everything from the boldest play with rooms and forms to the delicate restoration of a Danish classic such as Arne Jacobsen's Munkegård School. Edited by Tomas Lauri, this monograph features contributions from Hans Iberlings, Christian Bundegaard and Ken Martinussen with beautifully illustrated presentation of the firm's most acclaimed and daring projects.
