Resumen

Frecuentemente se asume que las formas arquitectónicas mesopotámicas han tenido un gran impacto en los planes de desarrollo urbanístico de ciudades como Nueva York en los años veinte o en la arquitectura visual moderna en Occidente. ¿Cuánto de este supuesto impacto se basa en realidad en formas arquitectónicas antiguas “reconstruidas” o “imaginadas”? ¿Y cuánto de estos monumentos “reconstruidos” en papel por arqueólogos y arquitectos fue influenciado en realidad por su propio conocimiento de la arquitectura moderna y contemporánea y el desarrollo urbanístico?

Este artículo explora si y cómo la arquitectura del siglo XX fue influenciada por los dibujos de los pioneros de la arqueología e, inversamente, cuánto afectó la arquitectura del siglo XX a estos dibujos arqueológicos y su influencia en la interpretación académica de la antigua arquitectura mesopotámica.
