Abstract

In late modernity, the symbolic function of architecture, that the architectural avant-gardes of the twentieth century have tried to abolish, emerges in the memorial buildings dedicated to the commemoration of the tragedies of the last century. In this article, it is treated from the architectural analysis, to reveal the significance of these traumatic events for contemporary societies. It argues some methodological procedures for articulating architectural language: how symbolic structures establish connections that affect both sensitivity and knowledge and how body, memory, space and time all together constitute an experiential nature unit.
