Our practice within BAST is committed to «ordinary contexts» and «programs devoid of architecture» in rural or periurban areas, such as clubhouses, refectories, communal homes, multiservice centers, municipal workshops, ex-tensions of town halls. Because we continuously question the use of material resources, programmatic recurrences, innovation and the economy that govern the act of building nowadays, we consider that these architectures can serve the production of commons. We ran a studio with 24 bachelor students of ENSA Toulouse in 2020, which aim was to design a small equipment based on a real program while developing a constructive system of its own. The proposals are simple and pragmatic constructions tolerating small budgets and seeking to enhance contemporary artisanal or industrial know-how.
