Deconstructing the Kimbell: An Essay on Meaning and Architecture
December 12, Deconstructing the Kimbell: An Essay on Meaning and Architecture , by Michael Benedikt In - the heyday's of architecture's borrowing of themes from Jacques Derrida's Deconstruction and early 20th-century Constructivism - Benedikt published a long form essay deciphering some of the philosopher's ideas and interpreting and applying them towards architecture. But instead of looking at projects by architects most overtly influenced by Derrida Peter Eisenman, Daniel Libeskind, Bernard Tschumi , the author steps back and applies Deconstruction to Louis I. By doing this, he attempts to see if the philosophy is a valid method for extracting meaning from architecture. Opting for this seminal late-Modern building over, say, Tschumi's Parc de la Villette, he also sets a precedent for a deeper reading and application of Deconstruction over a more direct, surface reading.
