About Stéphanie Bru & Brutherstudio
Stéphanie Bru studied at the Paris-Belleville School of Architecture. After a research fellowship on the subject of Infra-Architecture in Tokyo, she founded the Bruther agency in Paris with Alexandre Theriot in 2008.
Bruther works in the fields of architecture, research, education, urban planning and landscape. Bruther's aim is to "understand and accept conceptual and constructive needs but also to be able to turn back and unexpectedly encounter new areas of experimentation and research. Their projects suggest a delicate balance between strategy and form, rigour and freedom, specific and generic, immediacy and evolvability. Looking at the programme in its future, their projects stand for open infrastructures that adapt to an abundance of contextual possibilities and a great malleability of uses.
Prior to receiving the Swiss Architecture Prize 2020, Bruther was awarded theEquerre d'argent three times; in 2020 for the student residence and reversible car park in Palaiseau, in 2018 for the residence for researchers at the Cité internationale in Paris) and in 2016 for the new generation research centre in Caen.In 2015, the Centre Culturel et Sportif Saint-Blaise in Paris was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award.
