Rural housing - Expo Paris 1937

Missing picture
Architect(s) : Jean Royer

The rural housing pavilion was the vital point of an exhibition which was the culmination of studies co-ordinated by the Hygiene Section of the League of Nations.

The main divisions were as follows: the "Dwelling House", designed on the basis of standard plans which varied according to the country, climate, habits and agricultural work, and which indicated the various building materials and the distribution of the interior rooms with their fittings; the "Outbuildings": stables, sheds, granaries, yards and gardens; the "Environment", i.e. the rural community of which each dwelling, each farm, was a constituent part, and which also served the common services of general interest to the physical and moral health and well-being of the inhabitants.
