In the 1980s, French philosopher Jacques Derrida developed the concept of Deconstructivism. The architectural domain followed suit by fragmenting and manipulating construction by breaking down structures and exploring the asymmetry of geometry and freedom in form. Deconstructivism is characterized by a non-rectilinear approach with a loss of continuity. In this rebellious style, tradition is lost, and prior design rules are broken. Structures in the deconstructivism style are incredibly one-of-a-kind, so unique, distorted, weird. It can be a visually striking yet perplexing art. Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, Zaha Hadid, Bernard Tschumi, Peter Eisenman, and others were the pioneering figures of the ground-breaking Deconstructivism movement. Architecture became altered as we know it, and in this mélange of Russian Constructivism and Modernism, with bits of influence from Post-modernism, Cubism, and Expressionism, this is Deconstructivism.
DECONSTRUCTIVISM STYLE MOULDINGS
Deconstructivism does not typically include any traditional moulding profiles, but despite its appearance of unusual, cutting-edge flaunting of history, still must employ traditional detailing and materials. Sharp corners may be formed at any angle, ready to be mudded into the edges of drywall partitions, even “invisible” flush doors still require wood jambs. Stair treads, nosings and wood flooring can be milled to any angle, in any width required by the designer.
