Walter Benjamin and Sigfried Giedion Constructive Unconscious

Jean-Louis Déotte

Abstract


Walter Benjamin proposed as aesthetic and political objective to determine the axis of the common sensibility of the nineteenth century, based on the work of Sigfried Giedion: Bauen in Frankreich (1928). Giedion's works have since formed generations of architects, as a result of its international at the head of the International Congresses of Modern Architecture position.
