Like most contemporary architectural movements, deconstruction followed a movement in philosophy. Deconstruction was pioneered by the philosopher Jaques Derrida. Jaques’ work is very difficult to digest, even for seasoned students of philosophy. It’s translation into architecture happened primarily through Peter Eisenman. In architecture it’s commonly called deconstructivism. Look to early works by Peter Eisenman, especially his writing. Also look at early Frank Gehry, before he descended into curved-titanium-panel-hell, Lebeus Woods, Zaha Hadid, and early writings by Thom Mayne (i.e. Morphosis, when he was with Mike Rotundi). Bernard Tschumi’s Parc de la Villette is one of the better built examples of deconstructivist theory. I visited in it 1993, and it was actually pretty convincing.
