Travelling exhibition designed by ANMA Architectes Urbanistes, produced by the CAUE Rhône metropoleThe exhibition was designed by ANMA Architectes Urbanistes, in partnership with the ANMA Foundation, the BRGM national geological survey and Sciences Po l’École urbaine. The first exhibition will take place at the CAUE Rhône Métropole in Lyon from February 8 to May 20, 2022.
The exhibition proposes to unfold the mechanisms of the manufacture of the city by initiating a change of perception in our way of apprehending and valuing the soil.
the values of the soils
This research work explores and questions the values of our soils. He sheds light on the development processes at work and asks why society values its fertile land so little. It invites each visitor to change the way he or she looks at the soil. Do we really know the value of what’s under our feet?
The scenography distinguishes three main times. The first, rules of the game, to assimilate the manufacture of the city and its relationship to the soil: soil heritage, chronological frieze, soil values, economic construction of the development. The second, contemplative, to immerse oneself in three large animated cuts illustrating the tensions highlighted. And the last one, in the form of tracks, to open towards other ways.
the city’s construction
By inviting us to consider the soil as a common heritage, this exhibition presents the strata of the soil as clues to a collective and plural past history. A committed story that reveals the accelerating transformation of this limited resource.
Can observing the effects of our societies on our soils reexamine our ways of life? Does the eternal constraint of the economic balance of city building inevitably generate a debt inscribed in the soil for future generations?
