Bruther was founded in Paris in 2007 by Stéphanie Bru and Alexandre Theriot and is one of the outstanding architect’s offices in France. In their work, Bru and Theriot want to respond to social issues and not be guided primarily by aesthetic ideas. The relationship to the place where their buildings are located is of great relevance to them. They regard the frequently tense social contexts in which their buildings are erected to be imagination-stimulating. Here they want to create a balance by means of their architecture. Their approach is less one of urban planning than of architecture; in the eyes of Bruther, the latter is far more effective. It is fascinating to see how place both shapes and is shaped by their buildings.
For Bruther, architecture tells a story: a narrative that represents a very special journey for those who developed the building and for those who use it. But how should these narratives, which are made up of many individual stories, be told? What format does one choose to tell the work of this architectural practice? Stéphanie Bru and Alexandre Theriot explore this question in their conception of the exhibition CONSTRUIRE LIBRE.

The exhibition series Baukunst (Architecture) is curated by Andreas Wannenmacher. It takes place in cooperation with the Association of German Architects BDA.
