El Croquis 197: Bruther (2012-2018)
Founded in 2007 by Stéphanie Bru and Alexandre Theriot, Bruther works in the fields of architecture, research, education, urbanism, and landscape. Its projects suggest a delicate balance between strategy and form, rigour and freedom, specific and generic, immediacy and evolutivity. The office is known for designs that represent open infrastructures matching an abundance of contextual possibilities and with a wide malleability of uses. This monographic instalment presents a selection of Bruther’s work from 2012 to the present, featuring no less than 20 projects across a range of typologies, from the Helsinki Central Library to sports centres, residential solutions, and more.
