By Sir Lawrence A. Joseph
Deconstructivism is a word which has taken on postmodern implications. It originates from some postmodern approaches which are being undertaken by building architects who go contrary to traditional approaches to construction. Whilst they do so, in many instances a lot of building space is wasted in order to accommodate the new building formations. For example some buildings appear to be slanted and others appear to be overly rounded in form. A decontructivist therefore may be said to be someone who constantly attempts to destroy normal acceptable norms for his or her own gratification, completely disregarding utility.
