Abstract

Between the 1970s and the early 1980s Manfredo Tafuri and Frederic Jameson took two divergent stances concerning the potential role of utopian thinking in architectural and urban design. Manifestly, what was at stake in their debate was the legacy of the Modern notion of design as an effective tool for both material and socio-political transformation. What lessons can be taken, nowadays, from that confrontation?
