Güneri Söğüt, Gizem Deniz
This text dwells on and manifests the methodological significance of utopianism for the practices of the urban, and specifically architecture, building upon the core definitions made by Ruth Levitas in delineating utopia as method. It surveys various manners of architectural utopianisms - but not architectural utopias themselves - in their broadest sense, to identify the main tendencies of this methodology throughout the twentieth century.
