Decontructivism is a design style or movement that emerged in architecture, interior design, art, graphic design and philosophical literature in late 1980s early 1990s. Deconstructivism movement often refers to distorted, angular form, set in conflicting geometry and displaced.
Deconstructivsm generated iconoclastic architectural design as seen in some works, such as works of Zaha Hadid, Bernard Tschumi, Peter Eisenman, Morphosis, Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Libeskind, and Frank Gehry.

One of the example of deconstructivism movement is the work of Bernard Tschumi's design for the Parc de la Vilette in Paris. Tschumi proposed a nonhierarchical grid of dispersed pavilions instead of a more traditional building, echoing deconstruction’s own challenging of linguistic arrangements.

The beginning of deconstructive movement started in 1988 an event exhibition held by Museum of Modern Art in New York City with “Deconstructivist Architecture” and Tate Gallery in London with “Deconstruction in Art and Architecture”

Deconstruction emerged out of the post-structuralist tradition of literary theory, which in opposition to structuralism, stressed the slippage and fluctuation of meaning that is always at work in the process of linguistic and cultural signification.
