ABSTRACT
Starting from the example of the particularly ugly Palazzo Nuovo in Turin, this paper aims at providing, by way of comparison between architecture and visual arts, ten interpretations (conceptuality, auraticity, supplementarity, irresponsibility, parergonality, authoriality, subalternity, documentality, pyramidality, reality), which describe the characteristics of contemporary architecture as well as indicating certain limits and rules that architecture must necessarily come to terms with.

KEY WORDS
architecture, philosophy, visual arts, documentality, reality, Derrida, aesthetics
