In 1988, an exhibition of new group of
architects’ works at MOMA, New York, U.S.A.,
manifested “new images” in architecture. Those
works respond to architectural issues of complexity
and diversity different from the movement of
Historicism in architecture, which began in 1960s
as a part of Postmodernism1. The title of the exhibition
was named “Deconstructivist Architecture.”
These architects, championed by some architectural
theorists, believed that the historical type was not
a concrete answer to the development of western
architecture. Such “Historical Postmodernism” was
thought as merely the superficial re-presentation of
“old images” from the past. And it did not respond
to contemporary ways of life, which was enormously
effected by newly developed technologies.
