Another Kind of Knowledge is the result of a conversation that started in 2017 with the renowned Danish architect Dorte Mandrup, who for years has been an established figure in the Scandinavian architectural world, and is increasingly achieving prominence on an international level.

In this portrait film, Mandrup herself unfolds the cornerstones of her practice, which is predicated on the synthesis of place and history, materiality and sculpturality, resulting in a consistent articulation of the contemporary. Her buildings always speak about a place. But who is Dorte Mandrup? What has shaped her approach to architecture? How does she go about her projects? While revealing something about Mandrup’s inner and outer landscapes, Another Kind of Knowledge is a fascinating story about the essence and conditions of architecture today.
