Formatted abstract

Spatial thought has evolved significantly since the late 19th century; the modernist movement changed the way architects thought about space. Many of these developments in modernist spatial thought were aided by philosophical revelations, which provided the catalyst needed to engender different ways of thinking and designing in architecture. One of these new ways of thinking has been labeled ‘deconstructivism’; this title has often been applied to architects who endeavor to marry philosophy and architecture. One such project is the Jewish Museum Berlin, by architect Daniel Libeskind. This project shall be studied in order to provide insight into the fundamental nature of deconstructivism; the relationship between metaphysics and space.
