Decon in Bangalore

Deconstructivism in architecture, also called deconstruction, is a development of postmodern architecture
that began in the late 1980s. It is characterized by ideas of
fragmentation, an interest in manipulating ideas of a structure’s
surface or skin, non-rectilinear shapes which serve to distort and dislocate some of the elements of architecture, such as structure and envelope.
The finished visual appearance of buildings that exhibit the many
deconstructivist “styles” is characterised by a stimulating
unpredictability and a controlled chaos.

One such of these buildings (though where the decon element is only on the elevation rather than the whole building itself) is on St.Marks Road. It looks like an upcoming mall or something, and pretty unique in itself
