In Deconstructionist Perspective, we examine the ways in which the structure and meaning of our architectural creations are deconstructed, and how we can reclaim those meanings for our own.
The title of this post is taken from the book Deconstructed: The Art of Deconstitution by Stephen S. Cohen, a renowned scholar of deconstruction, deconstructionist art, and deconstructive aesthetics.
Architects are at the epicenter of a new wave of deconstructivism that is taking the architecture industry by storm, and is pushing the boundaries of deconstructed design.
This wave of art and architecture deconstruction is taking off as people reinterpret the aesthetics of classical architecture, while also trying to reimagine how we relate to architecture in the digital age.
The architecture industry has seen an explosion in the number of architects, with a whopping 879 new positions advertised for this year alone.
Many architects are taking on the task of designing for a new kind of architecture, one that seeks to redefine the meaning of the form and formlessness of our cities.
Archaeologists have also begun to question how our understanding of ancient art and culture may be affected by our current understanding of our current culture.
What is deconstruction?
The concept of deconvention is an attempt to rethink and reimagine the meanings of art, architecture, and nature, as it pertains to the past.
The term deconstruction derives from the Greek word for “to remove” or “displace,” which describes a process of removing something from its original context or context of meaning.
Deconversion has been applied to the deconstruction of ancient texts, to modern art, to the destruction of an ancient monument, and to the disinterment of an old piece of architecture.
Decontamination and deconstruction are applied to a wide variety of cultural and physical processes, from archaeological digs to the re-purposing of a piece of art.
Decolonization is often associated with an attempt at re-imaging the relationship between human beings and nature through the deconstructing of its structure, and the reconstruction of its form.
The concept of architectural deconstruction comes from the late 19th century French architect Louis Lévi-Strauss.
Lévois-Strauses deconstruction theory emphasizes that the meaning and meaninglessness of an architecture is not dependent on its construction.
The structure and shape of an object are only determined by its relationship to other objects in the space.
When deconstruction can be applied to an object, its purpose is often a question of what is meaningful about that object.
The meaning of a building, for example, is determined by the relationship of the building to its surroundings.
The deconstructionists believe that architecture can be re-created in the shape and form of nature.
What is architecture deconstructivist?
DeconSTRUCTIVISTS deconstruct architecture is an effort to deconstruct architectural meaning through a deconstructor’s interpretation of architectural forms and their meaning as they relate to their context.
This is a form of architectural theory that focuses on deconstructors ability to reconstruct an architectural work from the information, and interpretation of the material used to construct it.
A deconstructionivist is a deconstruction artist who believes that architectural forms should be understood not only as representations of human experience, but as objects of artistic experience, which can be understood as a “thing,” or a “form.”
The term “deconstruction” is also often used to describe an attempt in deconstructives work to understand the meaning, meaninglessness, and context of an architectural piece, a concept called the “decontemplative” deconstruction.
Decompression is a process in which a deconstructed work is returned to its original form, to its meaning, or its place in a larger context.
