So, there’s this badass French philosopher, Jacques Derrida. He’s a.. well, a writer. Nothing related to architecture. And as far as I’m concerned never even mentioned architecture in his writings. Then he came up with apparently brilliant but difficult theory of deconstruction. And there are a group of architects who read his work and one day they said, “oh, what the heck, lets implement his theory onto our designs! Gonna be awesssssome dudeeee”
So now, I officially hate Jacques Derrrida for coming up with the theory. Because of him, deconstructivists exist and therefore, I have to learn about deconstructivism. For that reason, I have to read shit that has nothing to do with architecture in order to understand the theory of deconstructivism because I then have to write about it. Since I’m suffering to understand the highly intellectual readings that have absolutely no mercy to their readers, I have to spend more time reading it over and over again and that’s costing me a lot of time, and when I spend a lot of time on that, I’ll have less time for other things and when I have less time for other things, meaning I have less time to sleep, eat, watch movies, go to the gym, shopping, day dreaming, camwhore, date, bitching about other people, sleep, (did I say that already), have chocolates SLOWLY, facebooking, blogging and facebooking. How am I supposed to approve friend requests, reply to comments and stalk other people? Do you want me to ignore you on facebook?! Or, leave my blog dead, unupdated? (pfft, as if that never happened before haha).
phew. now, try to reread the paragraph above, 10 times faster, OUT LOUD. :p
Deconstructivism is effing awesome nonetheless. Here are some examples of deconstructive architecture. Enjoy 🙂
I hope you’ll get the brief idea of what deconstructive architecture is. See, so nice of me to actually educate you. TELL ME THAT I’M NICE. SAY IT!!!
10. words. that. I. hate.
- deconstruction, deconstructivism, deconstructishit
- nested opposition
- controlled chaos
- unpredictable spaces
- modernism, post modernism
If I ever see any of the above words again… I’ll freaking burn the college like how our design theory lecturer burnt her village when she was six. Be afraid, people. Be very afraid.
p.s, I added header image, and edited the about page. Go check it out and tell me if you like it! HAHA.
