Deconstruction Architecture and Digital Technology

Deconstruction is first developed by the French philosopher Jacques Derrida. The definition for deconstruction is not easy to understand, and Derrida and his interpreters actually intend it to be difficult. It was first meant a method of interpretation and analysis of a text or a speech. He introduced the concept of deconstruction in connection with his linguistic philosophy and grammatology. When deconstruct a text or a speech, it is to draw out conflicting logics of sense and implication, with the object of showing that the text never exactly means what it ways or says what it means . Though, it has been applied not only to text but also to the visual arts and architecture.

The approach of deconstruction in architecture is to get

Eisenman has explored a new concept by generating a central public circulation space as a sequential progression of three-dimensional dislocations of the same absent space.

The form of The Hague is apparently illogical clashes of grids and of the three dimensional space, and the erosion splits the building into two independent living blocks. It also uses diagonal lines to destroy the perfect right-angled geometries of the modern movement. Some of the windows have turned at angles and rough materials are used in the structure.

The Hague Social Housing has been distorted by additions and subtractions of forms. The building is the receptacle of the imprints of the passage of this conceptual eroding of voids. The left is the trace frames of the new gaps, the narratives of the stationary that overlap the voids. Therefore, going home becomes a new experience, one of a recollection of events, a sequential reading of traces of the dislocation of time and place.

Computer-aided design is important in deconstruction; it allows the architects in planning, and to solve problems such as proportion and scale. Also, with the computer simulation, it uses to utilize the design phase to examine and optimize the energy concept like natural lighting, warmth and ventilation.

Deconstructionist architectures can be identified when the meaning of any work is un-decidable, or when the meaning of the work or architecture represses un-decidability. As Derrida has argued, if the
