This paper ultimately offers what we might call a critically disordered position: a position critical of hegemonic

Future of the Past History of Architectural Paradigms, Pragmatic Concerns, Social Innovations and Envisioning Narratives SLOBODAN DAN PAICH INTRODUCTION A trajectory from envisioned ideas to actualized projects is an aspect of history and history of ideas not often considered as subject in itself. The array of ignored, suppressed, disputed notions to fully implemen- ted, half-realized, subverted or simply canceled projects can inspire rich reflection and probing. History of architectural and urban utopian ideas can be a contribution to

Afterword: Past, Present, Future JEROME DE GROOT IS POPULAR HISTORY OBSOLETE? As this collection of articles demonstrates, and the work that contributed to it in terms of conference papers, discussion, seminar work, doctoral re- search and international conversations, the investigation of popular history is thriving and constantly developing. It is no longer possible for historians to dismiss popular culture or ignore the ways in which the past is repre- sented, rewritten, reordered, versioned, disrupted and fragmented in mul- tiple ways in
