architecture of deconstruction
The Specter of Jacques Derrida
Architecture has become a major cultural phenomenon, engaging other cultural practices and seeking for new theoretical inquest and providing a medium for philosophical discussion and sociopolitical analysis. As a discipline, architecture has bridged many boundaries and distances over time, so it is now required to develop an inter-disciplinary environment for philosophical inquiry in architecture.
On that note, the aim was to set the questions, to provoke the further discussion, to question the formal and philosophical assumptions underpinning contemporary architecture and to bring attention to the question of borders between the disciplines of architecture an philosophy, presenting and developing a plurality of voices and positions in the discussion of architecture, to reestablish the connections which influenced so strongly both architecture and philosophy in the last decades of the 20th century; and in doing so, open a possibility of their reevaluation in the circumstances which define our contemporary times.
