English term or phrase: truthfully conceived
A propos de l'architecture rurale "primitive" du Sud des Etats-Unis:
"Though often slight, their virtue is intimately related to the environment and to the heartlife of the people. Functions are usually **truthfully conceived** and rendered invariably with natural feeling. Results are often beautiful and always instructive."
Qu'est-ce qu'il veut dire par là? Vois pas exactement. Est-ce que "with natural feeling" se rapporte à la fois à "conceived" et à "rendered"?
Merci d'avance.

conçu avec réalisme


Explanation:
"Les fonctionalités de ces ... (maisons?) sont conçues avec un grand réalisme et le rendu a toujours quelque chose de très naturel."
Je trouve que "truthfully" est assez étrange ici, à moins que je ne comprenne pas ce que l'auteur veut dire par "functions"...
Bonne chance
