About the Book

The phrase "The Emperor Has No Clothes" is an old one, yet it fits Deconstructivism perfectly because it is nothing more than Modernism in a different form. Modernists, especially the Bauhäusler, sought to erase the past by throwing out all that came before. To give their objectives and works a fictitious historical background, they occasionally claimed connections with predecessors. Now, sympathetic architects and their followers are claiming these dubious connections and precedents for the Deconstructivists' works. This book's second edition marks the start of a long-overdue counterattack.
