    1. 1. Deconstructivism Started in1980s
    2. 2. About deconstructivism Started in the 1980’s and still going on today. Deconstructivism is an approach to building design that attempts to view architecture in bits and pieces. Deconstructivist buildings may seem to have no visual logic Ideas were borrowed from the French philosopher, Jacques Derrida. Buildings may appear to be made up of abstract forms.
    3. 3. Contemporary art Two strains of modern art, minimalisn and cubism , have had an influence on deconstructivism. A synchronicity of disjoined space is evident in many of the works of Frank Gehry and Bernard Tschumi.
    4. 4. Frank Gehry Frank Owen Gehry, is an architect based in Los Angeles, California. His buildings, including his private residence, have become tourist attractions. Gehrys best-known works are as follows
    5. 5. Guggenheim Museum Bilbao It is very curvy, has a spider sculptureoutside of it, a lot of shapes put together. This is a museum of modern and contemporary art. This building has been hailed as a "signal momentin the architectural culture“. The museum is clad in glass, titanium, and limestone
    6. 6. The Frederick R. Weisman art Museum  Made in 1993 in Minneapolis, Minnesota by Frank Gehry.  A teaching museum for the university since 1934.  Curvy frame, round shapes and very angular.
    7. 7. Gehry House  Frank Gehry made this house at Santa Monica, California in 1978.  It has a light wood frame and is an unnatural shape for a house.  Made up of lots of shapes that are different sizes.  It makes use of unconventional materials, such as chain link fence and corrugated steel.
    8. 8. Stata Center  Academic complex designed for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  It has a pointy frame with square and triangle shapes.Several MIT classes held here.
    9. 9. Dancing house  The very non-traditional design was controversial at the time.  Czech president ,Vaclav Havel who lived for decades next to the site, had supported it, hoping that the building would become a center of cultural activity.  The “dancing” shape is supported by 99 concrete panels, each a different shape and dimension.  Windows of dancing structure.
    10. 10. The monorail, built for Seattles 1962 Worlds Fair  This museum, focussed on pop music and is dedicated to Jimi Hendrix.  This building seems more confusing than most of Gehrys buildings.  This large sculptural building (140,000-square- feet).
