The Leap – inside Architect Dorte Mandrup’s Mind

Ane Skak, Niels Bjørn, Denmark, 2019

21 min.Interactive projectsVirtual reality

You are invited on a journey to UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Icefjord in Greenland and The Wadden Sea in Denmark to experience world-famous architecture shaped by unique landscapes, climate and human conditions. The viewer is immersed in internationally acclaimed Danish architect Dorte Mandrup’s universe and will discover how she weaves aesthetics, functionality and sustainability closely together to create landmark architecture. The VR experience aims to capture the thought process and creative process of an architect devoted to pushing materials and experimenting with form until something “leaps” inside of her, as she puts it, and she realizes the building is about to land as architecture.
