Constitutional Modernism

University of Minnesota Press

This introductory chapter explores the reciprocations of architecture and political circumstances in order to examine how architecture is incorporated within the developing course of civil society. It discusses the formal and informal mechanisms that organize changes among citizens and between citizens and the state. It examines the mechanisms that are themselves perpetuated through institutions and customs in order to manage the frictions and the desires of a body politic. It explores how architecture made its appearance in civil society. It argues that constitutionalism offered principles of exchange, circulation, and transmission necessary for their disciplinary constructions of elements and processes in civil society. It emphasizes that constitutionalism was the medium through which architecture made its appearance in Cuba’s history.
