Deconstruction and Architecture

    My writing is not prescriptive theories, but they are rather organization of texts which serves just to express, and connecting logics. They are just words. Deconstructivism in architecture, if one can defines it, it is neither a stylistic fashion, nor any pre-conceived imagery form. It is a movement, an act of deconstructing a sentence, a syntax, a building, stone by stone, piece by piece, exploring the possibility, digging below its surface
meaning and constructing reality. Word is always not a perfect medium for translation. Translation from a perception or an idea into text sometimes might causes the essence of reality to be deviated, sometimes causes misunderstandings and confusion. The act of deconstruction is critical to develop ideas and possibility from delving the truth. A tree is not to be reffered as a tree until a leaf is a leaf and vice versa. One of a gesture of deconstruction is to not naturalize what is not natural. Take social house for example. When ‘social house’ is deconstructed, what is meant by social, and what is meant by house. It is about questioning being and time, and ontology. Living room, corridor, reading room, toilet etc. When all the elements are deconstructed and questioned, they will be no longer in a conventional figure from time to time.
