The exhaustion of our planet's natural resources poses an essential challenge for architecture. The Sports Center Sargans by blue architects and Ruprecht Architekten demonstrates that sustainable architecture can achieve design excellence. The architects combine tradition and craftsmanship with modern techniques of production, creating a forward-looking yet locally rooted architecture. This contributes significantly to the dialogue on architectural design and sustainability in our globalised world. blue architects was founded in 1999 and has realised numerous public and private buildings and projects in Switzerland and abroad. Their work is driven by an interest in the connections between architecture and public space. Ruprecht Architekten was founded in 2001 by Rafael Ruprecht. Their focus lies on public buildings and urban planning, with a strong interest in structurally unique buildings with individualised connections to their surrounding space. Featuring texts by Hubertus Adam, Robert Kaltenbrunner and Christian Salewski.
