From March 31 to June 15, 2022, the Maison de l'Architecture Occitanie-Pyrénées is hosting "Rusticité", a monographic exhibition proposed by the architecture agency GENS.

Rusticité is an exhibition project that is three times naive. It illustrates a possible relationship between contemporary architecture and the rural world by breaking down each project presented into three elements:
— the “train” model on a scale of 1/50 which describes it in a realistic and playful way;
— the aerial view of the site as the backdrop that welcomes it, decorative wallpaper that combines photographic realism and the analytical vision of the geometric plan;
— a questionnaire answered by each project owner who presents it with their own perspective, that of ordinary mortals.

The definitions of “rusticité” and “rustique”, as well as that of rurality that we are considering serve as an introductory remark.
