As part of architectural design problem solving Creativity andInnovation are among the factors which incorporate new concepts and methods indesigning.

This study aimed at the understanding of a design perspective ofdeconstructivism and helps the designer to create geometricallyabstact,unfamiliar but exceptional projects.This pushes the the architectsproductivity and the architectural students needs the most when they  learning and discovering capability ofdesigning. KEYWORDSDeconstructivism, creativity,architecturaldesign,structure,form,freedom,abstract,  Tableof ContentsBACKGROUND INFORMATION..

Focusing more on the freedom of form, rather than functionalconcerns, the Deconstructivists aim to perplex the visitor, making the stay intheir space an experience worth remembering, and the interior is as much asmesmerizing as the exterior in most cases, even more wondrous in some.*1 Deconstructivist architecture is a type ofarchitecture developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Unlike any other typeof architecture,deconstructivism escapes the conventional architectural pattern,breaking all that way all the rules of constructive theory. The leader of thismovement was the French Philosopher Jacques Derrida, who, as we shall seelater, with his ideas and philosophy has strongly influenced other architectsinto accepting and applying this unpredictable type of architecture.In this course of paper, I will discuss the conceptof ‘deconstructive architecture’ analysing it’s elements and basic principles.Moreover, the historical development of deconstructivismand the origins of thismovement will be studied.The philosophy behind this type of architecture willalso be discussed along with examples of buildings which illustrate the conceptof  ‘deconstructivist architecture’. Inaddition to the above, some criticism will be made on the subject showing thatthe debate surrounding the nature of this form of architecture is bothcontroversial and contradictory. Examples and commentary will be given byarchitects that have given their personal opinion on the subject throughout theyears.This research will focus on studying many deconstructiveprojects for famous architects such as Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, DanielLibeskind …etc as an attempt to clarify some obscure items on their structuralshape and philosophy. PROBLEMSTATEMENTAfter the establishment of deconstructivism in thebeginning of 1980s, architecture departments had started focusing on thissubject and teaching it as one of the main subjects. However, in manycountries, there was much less,or no, interest. Surely architects should becreative and often individual in their projects? Unless an architect has freshinnovations, architecture will not advance , and buildings will always besimilar,as we can observe in cities today..There is no variety which gives a feelingof monotony in a city’s general form and skyline. Therefore, I believedeconstructivism should be taught to architecture students in universities, sothat they are familiar with the concepts , thus enabling them to be morecreative when designing buildings.Students find many complications in producingdeconstructivism because they are taught how such buildings are constructed andhow the concept of  a project can be unusualforms .So architectural schools should include deconstructivism in its syllabusthusgiving students the ability  to deal withand design in it confidently. PURPOSEOF STUDYOvertime, the number of professional architects andarchitectural students interests in deconstructivism are increasingly growing.Involvement in this style could direct their potential and imagination into designingnew forms in architecture which attracts people attention and appreciation.Astonish people , as Frank Gehry’s work does.The purpose of this research is tostudy deconstructivist projects and their radical concepts in order toencourage architects to be more curious about it. THEOBJECTIVES OF THE STUDYThe objectives of the study are summed up into thefollowing points:•          Tofind out what inspires architects in designing deconstructive forms.•          Toinvestigate the notion of a project at it’s birth : the philosophy behind theconcept and how the architect translates this in practice, especially relatingto the external form of a building.•          To recommendsolutions that encourage architects to adopt deconstructivism in their designs.For example, by studying deconstructivism through related subjects such as theunderlying notion of philosophy and how to translate this into architecturaldesign (with special focus on exterior design) RESEARCHQUESTIONS1-What are the inspiring aspects of definingdeconstructivism?2-How could architects convey their thoughts into extraordinarydesigns?3-What is the level of awareness of students of EasternMediterranean University about the importance of dealing with deconstructivism?4- What are the reasons for neglecting to teach,oronly partially teach, deconstructivism in architecture departments?5-What are the difficulties that face studentsduring designing in a deconstructive way?6-How can we encourage architects to be involved inthis way of designing? SIGNIFICANCEOF THE STUDYThis research will study deconstruction in detail interms of creating unconventional buildings which will be landmarks.The outcomewill help students immerse themselves in deconstructive designs. Boostimagination in architects and their designs , reflected in more diverse andinteresting architecture, on general view of the city as well. These varietieswill flourish urban city texture. Citizens live in better designed buildingsand subconsciously the attention to architecture will increase.  Architectscan create centres of attraction whilst changing the urban texture(such asDubai) SCOPEThe focus for this study is EMU third – fourth yeararchitectural students. Students at these levels have a good basic knowledge inmany areas in architecture.They know how to design a building, which startsfirstly, with the concept of a project and the main function of that building.They are qualified architecturally,to design and structurally draw atraditional “familiar” building. They have ability to design very detail inorder to complete a project.Therefore these students are ready to comprehendthe second notion of building -deconstruction. They will be able to interprettheir imagination gained from previous experience ,into a new deconstructiveforms, analysing how it can be constructed in a fully functional, comfortableand innovative manner.Besides EMU architecture students, the study willalso involve EMU architecture professors, teachers, PHD, master students, inorder to get their opinion about this movement from many aspects like function,external and internal form, and structure. The collective information will leadto a better understanding of the general background and vision of specialistsabout this architectural movement. METHODOLOGYThis part of the research will discuss the toolsused to get the essential information. the primary data used is throughquestionnaire,workshops, interviews and observations .The questionnaireconsists of open-ended questions such as a qualities data and close-endedquestions-yes/no, listing, ranking and categorising as quantitive data.Theworkshops are organized to find out how,in approaching a three dimentionalproject, creativity levels change.The qualitative data for the research came frominterview, observation, and experimentation .Trying carefully to choose theinterviewers who are strongly related to the subject and respondents who willbe helpful on giving their experience about this style of architecture .The secondary data would be collected from Books,Journals, and electronic resources such as e-journals, websites, and onlinematerials.   CONCLUSIONFor those who truly value DeconstructivistArchitecture, it is the creativity and inventive freshness, that creates newrules in architecture,which they value One the other hand, there are those whodoubt this approach and who are always sure of the negative results and theanti-social nature of the activity. It could also just be a matter of self-denial. After all, deconstructivist architecture may appearodd to some people due to its unconventional and out-of-barriers technique andlooks, but it has managed to find its own place in the world of architecture.It has also proven that it still retains social significance and recognitionamongst the public. This can be illustrated by the demand of consumers to moreand more ask for modern and different impressive buildings. It can also be seenby the famous buildings made by well-known architectures. However, this couldnot be made without the bad or good criticism. Even though, the buildings stillmanage to impress and attract, as except of being functional and structurallystable, they are also unique.*2 REFERANCE*1  https://www.widewalls.ch/deconstructivism-buildings/*2  https://www.ukessays.com/essays/philosophy/the-controversial-opinions-of-deconstructivist-architecture-philosophy-essay.phphttps://www.widewalls.ch/best-articles-editors-pick-2015/”Creativity in Architecture and Management” Written byDr. Mohammed Abdulrahman Alomar King Saudi Universityhttp://fab.utm.my/ismail/files/2015/01/Deconstructivism-and-It%E2%80%99s-Difficulties-with-Architect…
