Traveling exhibition designed by ANMA Architectes Urbanistes, produced by the CAUE Rhône Métropole, in partnership with the ANMA Corporate Foundation, the BRGM National Geological Survey and Sciences Po Urban School. The first hanging takes place at the CAUE Rhône Métropole in Lyon from February 8 to May 20, 2022.
The exhibition proposes to unfold the mechanisms of the fabric of the city by initiating a change of perception in our way of apprehending and valuing the soils.
This research work explores and questions the values of our soils. It sheds light on the development processes at work and wonders why society values its fertile land so little. It invites each visitor to change the way they look at the floors. Do we really know the value of what is under our feet?
The scenography distinguishes three great times. The first, rules of the game, to assimilate the fabric of the city and its relationship to the land: heritage soil, chronological timeline, land values, economic construction of the development. The second, contemplative, to immerse oneself in three large animated cuts illustrating the tensions brought to light. And the last, in the form of tracks, to open towards otherwise.
the production of the city
By inviting us to consider the soil as a common heritage, this exhibition presents the strata of the soil as so many clues to a past, collective and plural history. A committed story that reveals the acceleration of the transformations at work of this limited resource.
Can observing the effects of our societies on our soils question our ways of life? Does the eternal constraint of the economic balance of the production of the city inevitably generate a debt inscribed in the soil for future generations?
