BSI Swiss Architectural Award 2020



Since its creation in 2007, the Swiss Architectural Award conferred by the Accademia di architettura in Mendrisio has made a place for itself among the major international accolades by recognizing emerging figures who have at least three major built works to show and whose constructions are notably sensitive to landscape, ecology, and the ethical and aesthetic challenges of the discipline. In its seventh round, the biennial prize was unanimously granted to Bruther, the studio established in Paris in 2007 by Stéphanie Bru (1973) and Alexandre Theriot (1972). Characterized by a broad outlook where architecture, research, teaching, urban planning, and landscaping converge, Bruther has managed to combine acceptance of the functional issues raised by today’s world with experimentation in projects situated halfway between rigor and freedom, specific and generic, stable and variable, among which the jury has highlighted three remarkable buildings: the Saint-Blaise Center in Paris (2014), the MRI Research Center in Caen (2015), and Maison Julie-Victoire Daubié residence, also in the French capital (2018).
