In a tactile and seductive universe, you’ll be introduced to Dorte Mandrup’s amazing architecture by the Wadden Sea in Denmark and the Ilulissat Icefjord in Greenland – both featured on the prestigious list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Experience how architecture is shaped by unique natural landscapes.
The ice is melting in Greenland, and the water level is rising in the Wadden Sea. These fragile landscapes are threatened by climate change and building in these conditions is not easy. How does the landscapes shape the architecture?
This and much more the audience will learn by visiting Irreplaceable Landscapes featuring Mandrup’s trilogy of Wadden Sea centres across Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands, as well as the Illulissat Icefjord Center in Greenland. In the exhibition, the audience will walk into large installations and experience the fragile nature and architecture of these particular places on their own body. All four projects can be explored through large installations and VR films, where you fly beyond the icecap and the Wadden Sea, see the projects being built, hear the birds sing and the glacier crack and feel the prickly straws under your feet.
