Therefore, deconstruction is understood to be un-problematically architectural, as it combines with the idea of the system in philosophy, and theory, also the practice and logic ... ... middle of paper ... ...re of architecture. The fundamental idea of architecture consists of primary forms such as cubes, cones, cylinders, and cetera. Although, deconstructionist architecture made clear to the observer that the architecture is an art and not just an engineering discipline, and it is a representation of a material that represent of abstract data. Although deconstructionist architecture does not succeed in the nature of architecture, however, deconstruction is philosophical in the sense that it deploys a distinctive mode of argument in raising certain problem about knowledge, meaning and representation. My opinion on deconstruction is that some of the architecture can be really beautiful but others can be strange.
Anything that has been made can be made better. There it is: the things I believe are of important architecture.” With this statement, both architects have allowed their own techniques and personalities to take part in their designs to innovate new meaningful architecture. Though what they do may be different, how they take on their projects share some similarities. Theories become a major aspect when it comes to the ways of Libeskind and Rossi. Aldo Rossi is another influential architect, who has been recognized for his architectural drawings and theory.
Architecture is not ever autonomous, contrary it is related to the city and the structural area. When looking at the architecture of Steven Holl, a continuity can be seen. The word of anchoring that is used as becoming a place shows some similarities with the approach of “critical regionalism” defined by Kenneth Frampton (1983). Frampton describes forms that are thought like an image and mentions the possibilities of an authentic architectural manner that refers to a specific place of architecture. According to Holl (1989), the most distinctive feature of architecture instead of the other activities is to stem from being an integral part of a place.

Typology serves as a topic that draws connections between keywords and different theorists' concepts. "Symbolic meaning enriches human space with personal and sociocultural value, communicates attitudes and beliefs, integrates with other sign systems in communication, and regulates social behaviors." ( )Type is a medium that transports the history and culture. Rafael Moneo thinks that is impossible to build a future with the solid ground without grounding it in the past and tradition (Moneo 25). To ensure the sustained development of human civilization, architects should become protectors, connoisseurs, and creators to our culture.
Accordingly, the different architectural styles found in architectural of an era and/or different eras are significantly shaped by the variations found in the design values embedded in the design process. In that sense, changes in architecture are created by the change in design values. To avoid, or at least, decrease repeating history, Noori’s study provided a perspective on adapting a promising concept in architecture, borrowed from philosophy: the “transvaluation” of values. Besides, since architecture is mainly connected to human life, the study considered and examined Nietzsche's “transvaluation” project. In order to do so, the study took the state of contemporary architecture as a case study for exploring the “transvaluation” theme.
Character becomes an important force in architectural theory. Although character starts with a functionalist aesthetic and it is the fitness of the building which is expressed, the idea of power begins to overpower the functional character becomes connected to emotiveness. Further, function begins to take on a symbolic expression rather than the idea of fitness. Claude Nicolas Ledoux and Etienne Louis Boullee are students of Blondel, and they extended his theoretical position to an extreme. Domination of the visual and the impact of architecture on the senses is a driving concern on Boullee.
Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Liebeskind, Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid. Modern day ‘starchitects’ who - through their practice of deconstructivist architecture - have heavily influenced the overall approach to today’s architecture. But what exactly is deconstructivist architecture? Is it a derivative of postmodernist principles, or something of its own entirety? Through the analysis of particular modern day architects and their works, deconstructivism ascertains its emergence as a separate architectural form that contrasts with and challenges postmodern design principles.
These questions prompt that good and city are two words that form more questions than answers. In these nebula of questions urban design plays an important role because its nature is in the urban and therefore in the city. As Madanipour points out, urban design occupies a potentially strategic place in shaping the city of the future (Madanipour, 2006). Madanipour uses two words that are fundamental in this conversation: city and future. It is therefore important that urban design is concerned not only with the present but also with a long term thinking about cities: the future that is open-ended, even though not infinitely malleable (Friedmann, 2000).
