Deconstructivism is a postmodern architectural style that emerged in the late 20th century. It is characterized by the use of fragmented and irregular forms, often inspired by the collapse of modernist ideals and the rejection of traditional architectural techniques. Deconstructivist buildings often appear chaotic and asymmetrical and are meant to challenge the viewer’s perception and interpretation of the structure. The style was influenced by the theories of French philosopher Jacques Derrida and his concept of “deconstruction.” In architecture, this idea was applied to the physical form of buildings, often creating structures that appear to be in a state of collapse or disunity. Deconstructivism has been used to create a wide range of structures, including museums, theaters, and private homes.
