Yet beside the oases of order that were the Siedlungen— true constructed utopias, on the margins of an urban reality little affected by them—the old cities continued to accumulate and multiply their contradictions. And for the most part, these contradictions would soon appear more vital than the tools established by the architectural milieu to control them. The architecture of Expressionism succeeded in absorbing the ambiguous vitality of these contradictions. The Viennese Ho¨fe and the public buildings of Poelzig or Mendelsohn were clearly foreign to the new methodologies of urban intervention of the avant-garde movements.
For this reason, the relationships between the whole current of nineteenth-century political utopianism and the ideas of the “modern movement,” though plentiful, would remain very indirect. Indeed, we must consider the links normally established by modern historians between the utopias of Fourier, Owen, and Cabet, and the theoretical models of Unwin, Geddes, Howard, and Stein, on the one hand, and those of the Garnier–Le Corbusier current on the other, as hypotheses in need of TAFURI 1969 15 careful verification.
Still, to present the dialectic of twentieth-century architecture as a unitary cycle is not entirely off the mark, even if such a point of view is tenable only from within this cycle. The rejection of contradiction as a premise for objectivity and the rationalization of planning revealed its own partiality at the very moment when architecture came closest to the political power structures. The very goal of the social democratic architects of central Europe was the unification of administrative power and the intellectual project.
