The first movements of deconstruction were in America which established through the literary criticism of new strategies for interpreting literary texts. Theorists and thinkers believe that Jacques Derrida (French philosopher, born in Algeria) on a wide range had a significant impact on the fields of philosophy, architecture, art and music and These wide impacts have caused him (Derrida) to be the integral part of deconstruction theory and any study in these areas requires the “recognition of the of his thinking and perspective”. These theories introduced in the late 1980s, by the American architect Peter Eisenman famous (American architect and theorist) in the form of a style of architecture to the world. The decline of modern architecture of the twentieth century provided an underlying for this style to find a prominent place and within a short time changed the Western contemporary architecture and created fundamental changes in its space. Therefore the present article by the use of bibliotheca and descriptive- analytic methods expresses the views of architects and theoreticians in this field and also aims to investigate the process of deconstruction emergence, its roots and the factors affecting it. Finally, it proposes suggestions for future researches on the impact of deconstruction on architecture of countries, especially Iran.
