A lot of people tried to appropriate it. Buildings I have seen that are referred to as deconstructionist have juxtaposed components that are treated radically differently in terms of form and material to a point that the casual observer (myself) would not be able to find unifying content. But that is not a definition of "deconstructionism". I assumed it referred to an approach to the design process.

I'd like to see a definition myself.

Some critics have referred to buildings that look like they are in the process of falling down or coming apart.
