....everytime you see an askew angle in a plan or elevation,you're seeing an echo of decon.....

visual distortion in a 2 dimensinal world(plan or elevation) is not a new from of artistic perceptive point of view or a personal feat for the Decon's Gods(Zaha and her brothers!)

Cubisms according to definition is an art style developed in 1908 by
Braque and Picasso,where the artist breaks down the natural forms of the subjects into geometric contrast to traditional painting styles where the perspective of subjects are " fixed and complete",cubist work can portray "the subject from multiple perspectives"

the analysis of compositional elements into their basic geometric forms and rearranged in a new pictorial order is not an echo for the
Decon's Gods,it's a century late 2 dimensional sonic boom into the 3
dimensional world of architecture!

Let us put it this way,visual distortion in art and architecture is it a psychological abnormality or not ?
well let us see what Rudolph Arnheim said in (Art and Visual Perception)!
