Geometry was to deconstructivists what ornament was to postmodernists, the subject of complication, and this complication of geometry was in turn, applied to the functional, structural, and spatial aspects of deconstructivist buildings. The symbolic breakdown of the wall effected by introducing the Constructivist motifs of tilted and crossed bars sets up a subversion of the walls that define the bar itself. With its publication, functionalism and rationalismthe two main branches of modernism, were overturned as paradigms.

It is characterized by an absence of harmony, declnstructivista, or symmetry. They evoke basic structural units such as bars of steel or sawn lumber loosely attached, piled, or scattered.

Critics of deconstructivism see it as a purely formal exercise with little social significance. An example of this is the Wexner Center. Since the publication of Kenneth Frampton ‘s Modern Architecture: Arizona State University, retrieved June This apparent chaos actually constructs the walls that define the bar; it is the structure.

One example of deconstructivist complexity is Frank Gehry ‘s Vitra Design Museum in Weil-am-Rhein, which takes the typical unadorned white cube of modernist art galleries and deconstructs it, using geometries reminiscent of cubism and abstract expressionism. Though postmodernist and nascent deconstructivist architects both published in the journal Oppositions between arquitscturathat arquitecyura contents mark a decisive break between the two movements.

Deconstructivism attempts to move away from the supposedly constricting ‘rules’ of modernism such as ” form follows function ,” ” purity of form ,” and ” truth to materials.


The two aspects of critical theory, urgency and analysis, are found in deconstructivism. It argues against the purity, clarity and simplicity of modernism. Eisenman was a friend of Derrida, but even so his approach to architectural design was developed long before he became a Deconstructivist.

Two strains of modern art, minimalism and cubismhave had an influence on deconstructivism. Critical Theoryhowever, had at its core a critique of capitalism and its excess, and from that respect many of the works of the Deconstructivists would fail in that regard if only they are made for an elite and are, as objects, highly expensive, despite deconstructivistta critique they may claim to impart on the conventions of design.

Lin also contributed work for Eisenman’s Wexner Center. In his series ProunsArauitectura Lizzitzky assembled collections of geometries at various angles floating free in space. December Learn how and when to remove this template message.

Both were concerned with the radical simplicity of geometric forms as the primary artistic content, expressed in graphics, sculpture and architecture. Besides fragmentation, Deconstructivism often manipulates the structure’s surface skin and creates by non- rectilinear shapes which appear to distort and dislocate elements of architecture.

In addition to Derrida’s concepts of the metaphysics of presence and deconstructivism, his notions of trace and erasure, embodied in his philosophy of writing and arche-writing [11] found their way into deconstructivist memorials.

Synthetic cubismwith its application of found object art, is not as great an influence on deconstructivism as Analytical cubismbut is still found in the arrquitectura and more vernacular works of Frank Gehry.



The Constructivist tendency toward purismthough, is absent in Deconstructivism: Scott Brown and S. Several artists in the s and s contributed work that influenced or took part in deconstructivism.

Mark Wigley wrote the accompanying essay and tried to show a common thread among the various architects whose work was usually more noted for their differences. Though the computer has made the designing of complex shapes much easier, not everything that looks odd is “deconstructivist. His movement into abstract expressionism and away from figurative work, [12] is in the same spirit as the deconstructivist rejection of ornament for geometries.

Some architects identified with the movement, notably Frank Gehryhave actively rejected the classification of their work as deconstructivist. Eisenman drew some philosophical bases from the arquitevtura movement Deconstructionand collaborated directly with Derrida on projects including an entry for the Parc de la Villette competition, documented in Chora l Works.

The term “Deconstructivism” in contemporary architecture is opposed to the ordered rationality of Modernism and Postmodernism.

At times deconstructivism mirrors varieties of expressionism, neo-expressionismand abstract expressionism as well.

There is a tendency to re-examine and critique other works or precedents in deconstructivism, and also a tendency to set aesthetic issues in the foreground. The show examines an episode, a point of intersection between several architects where each constructs an unsettling building by exploiting the hidden potential of modernism.
