Then, would it be more beneficial than it is? Its time, at last, to speak in depths about deconstruction, and the truth is this. Deconstruction is not plainly an architectural style that applies chaotic manner of distortion to a building. Johnson and Wigley (1988) stated that “Deconstruction is not demolition or dissimulation”, and then “deconstruction gains all its force by challenging the very values of harmony, unity, and stability, and proposing instead
Their forms only relate to their inner necessity. Their inner law determines their ”Gestalt”. In that case we have to understand the anti-baroque plan, in which new relationship of all parts, parts to each other and parts in relationship to their whole are formed until in the end no parts exist anymore, but only autonomous objects. With this view architecture works for itself and can be justify only by its existence and not by some relationships with its function and form, which remove either the formal or the functional approach to architecture. Which introduce a new interpretation of “death of the architect” in a battle with an autonomous architectural

The movement leveled fine art and commercial art together, keeping with its view that design was meant for application. The Bauhaus design philosophy was based on the belief that "form follows function" (Ryan and Conover 52). Meaning that a piece's form was meant to supplement or compliment the function, which determined what the form would be. Most Bauhaus designs were low on ornamentation and rather simple and practical, focusing on the fulfillment of its purpose over anything else. According to Amy Arnston, the artists and workers involved in Bauhaus "did not attempt to produce works of art, but rather good and useful designs in which form was tied to again" (29).
Its characteristics include manipulating and fragmenting the surface, the use of non-rectilinear shapes that distorts the conventional methods and mechanics of the structure and enclosure of a building. Deconstruction challenges all forms of traditional design by juxtaposing elements that contradict each other to challenge the conventional norms of harmony and continuity. Zaha is the epitome representation to capture the zeitgeist of deconstruction. Her designs are bold, organic, contemporary and innovative. These outburst in design are rooted back to her growing up in a
In the Doric temple, the triglyph and cornice are unimitative so no one would call these members beautiful. On the other hand, the fluting of the column was imitative in its origin so beauty is felt on it. the Doric capital is unimitative so Ruskin saw no beauty on it. In addition, the pointed arches are beautiful, because they are imitative member, they resemble the termination of the leaf. Ornament of the Lombard architects composed of right lines.
According to Kerr, the architectural space of a corridor within a building was not a space to be occupied for living. (Truby, 2014) The corridor acted solely in terms of route and destination. ‘Kerr, for his part, mobilized architecture in its entirety against the possibility of commotion and distraction.’ (Truby, 2014) The general strategy was compartmentalization and universal accessibility. Any possibility for interaction or occupation within this space was eliminated through the strict emphasis on continued circulation and separation between rooms and social classes. Privacy was the overruling factor for these principles.
The Postmodernism movement wanted to make people question why things were the way they were and allow buildings to surprise you. Modernists generally had an unrealistic belief of perfection and a made up utopian vision of human life when on the other hand Postmodernists believed in questioning everything and the idea of complexity. Modernists believed in form follows function, they stated a building should be functional, almost working and looking like a machine especially due to the fact all buildings began to look the same due to having the same clean, simple features and materials (glass, concrete, steel) which worked well when working at a fast pace but didn 't allow the designer to take their time and design something for not just the function but the aesthetic. Unlike modernist architecture, postmodernism architecture was quite ornamental, new designs were introduced but they also recycled certain features from the past to make something new, such as bringing colour back into architecture, which was not important at all during the modernist era. As you can see in figure 1 it is a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1893 which looks very different to a postmodern building show in figure 2 of the guild house by Robert venture, the straight cut lines and symmetrical windows at the William
Pera Palace Hotel is in Pera and it has neo-classical, art nouveau and oriental styles but its facade follows a neo-classical approach. It is the nearest neo-classic building to Santa Maria Church. They both have an unsophisticated exterior facade with their materials and window sizes. Pera Palace’s window shapes don’t belong to neo-classical style but its simplicity belongs. (fig.
Yet floor, walls and ceiling are light, free and floating in the dense buildings and their differences in protection ability are provided by the environment, energy and industrial tools, which this method alters context features since it is in the range of the supernatural behavior. Context-oriented architecture is camouflaged in the context by various methods and designer benefits all natural forces and features in such a way that the least noticeable transformation occurs in the text. Earth shelter, light exposure, air movement, and water evaporation, all are working to have minimum impact on the environment along with the maximum interaction with the created space. So, this architecture doesn't aim at maximum exploitation by repeated renewals, but protection of the constructed structures and restoration and use change and their compatibility with current practices of the life as much as
