Deconstruction is a form of criticism first used by the French philosopher Jacques Derrida in the 1970s which asserts that there is not one single intrinsic meaning to be found in a work, but rather many, and often these can be conflicting. the term does not inherently refer to the style's deconstructed visuals as the English adjective suggests, but instead derives from the movement's foundations in contrast to the Russian constructivist movement during the first worlds war that "broke the rules" of classical architecture through the French language.
