Based on a supposed conceptualization found in Manfredo Tafuri on the notion of "Major Architecture", which only appears only in one of his books and in a way not explicitly developed, a whole series of authors compare the openings of a contrary notion, "Minor Architecture", which would serve to counteract the excesses that the discipline has historically perpetuated. In particular, the term "Minor" goes back to Deleuze/Guattari's interpretation of Kafka's work as "Minor Literature". The temporality of the discussion between a major and a minor architecture starts in the field of the relationship literature/architecture in the American universities, at the end of the 1990s within the peak of the deconstruction. It should be remembered the definition of différance, where an economy of oppositions scans our language, as Derrida wrote. Jennifer Bloomer is the first to see such a concept "Major" but, in our opinion, with the little development that Tafuri makes, compared to others such as "incomplete architecture", it does not justify the comparison of all those who did not doubt that Tafuri developed it. From J. Stoner's book (2012) to the epigonal comparisons of courses at Yale (2015), with respectable academics such as F. Scott or J. Till, they have aimed to move from the minor in the literature to any other ways of making in culture, that deconstruction of the architectural sense. Following a genealogical review of the writings that are linked to each other with the same fragile foundational condition in Tafuri, the aim is to determine if there is a weak argument and to evaluate the possibility that the lesser is comparable to the greater, for its usurpation. At the same time, we intend to elucidate whether when "architecture" is spoken of, it is understood on the contrary it is "space" and to promote an extension to counter-spaces and heterotopias.
