Project published in a+t 48 Generators, Linkers, Mixers & Storytellers
June 28, 2017
The generators become complex buildings which, devoid of any contingency, evolve faster and are able to anticipate potential changes, to reconfigure themselves in order to adapt.
The machine-building Sport and Cultural Centre by Bruther in Saint-Blaise district (París) has many ramifications to untangle. This complexity is the result of mixed programs and is an inherent condition of its architecture. It is a collection of juxtaposed and heterogeneous elements which present a certain cohesion between them, a whole whose form has not been predefined. Its morphology, subtly shaped, gives the project a sculptural character and proposes a break with the utilitarian architecture that characterizes the district.
