ABSTRACT This article examines how the juxtaposition between the two rival approaches to the past, history and memory, was configured in and through the built environment in the decades around 1900. It argues that memory was not, as some contemporary polemicists suggested, the opposite of academic historicism. It is better understood as a logical continuation of historicism's inherent deconstructivist tendencies.
