The deep connection between place and architecture is ever-present in the work of the Danish architecture studio Dorte Mandrup. This summer they will show the architecture exhibition PLACE at Liljevalchs+.
Endless Horizontal lines, extreme cold, wind and ice, collective memories and rugged shores. Danish architecture studio Dorte Mandrup employs an artistic, humanistic and scientific approach to design buildings that are deeply connected to the places from which they arise. It is not about being sentimental, but rather a need to give something meaningful back and enhance the understanding of each place. The exhibition PLACE is the studio's love letter to context and invites us to explore and unearth the local stories that have inspired the architecture of four unique projects.
Each project is presented through a sculptural model that highlights the dialogue between place and building and, like Stockholm, have a relation to water. Visitors are taken on a journey through four different locations, from the yellow-brown marshes of the Wadden Sea to the breathtakingly vast scale of the Arctic, and the mysterious landscape hidden beneath the surface of Norwegian Sea. The exhibition extends beyond the building themselves to reveal artifacts, materials, and studies that allow visitors to follow the creative process and understand how Dorte Mandrup works with context.
The exhibition is produced by the Copenhagen-based architecture studio Dorte Mandrup and is presented at Liljevalchs in a collaboration between the art gallery, Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin and PopupArch Stockholm.
Open today 11-17
