Looking afresh at the implications of Jacques Derrida’s thinking for architecture, this book simplifies his ideas in a clear, concise way. Derrida‘s treatment of key philosophical texts has been labelled as "deconstruction," a term that resonates with architecture. Although his main focus is language, his thinking has been applied by architectural theorists widely.

As well as a review of Derrida’s interaction with architecture, this book is also a careful consideration of the implications of his thinking, particularly on the way architecture is practiced.

This book and series will then appeal to the architect, student, and academic looking for connections between this great mind and the built environment. That his field dealt mostly in intangibles only makes one realize how powerful an idea can be, how his thinking and philosophy have and continue to influence so many, architects and al. – Sean Ruthen, Spacing Magazine.

Talk about Derrida for Architects (Thinkers for Architects)

It seems like an impossible task to offer any kind of summary about Derrida in less than 100 pages. While recognizing the inherent challenge of communicating Derrida to an architectural audience without having to 'dumb it down,' so to say, Coyne skillfully packages the essential issues around Derrida's thinking as it pertains to critical architectural discourse. As one of those architects who picks away at 'Of Grammatology' now and again with keen interest but only a very loose grasp of Derrida and his philosophy, this book was extremely useful to clarify and contextualize his essential contributions. The breadth of Coyne's research combined with the accessible delivery make this a highly recommended read for students, professors, and practitioners alike.

On the back cover of Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak's (1976) penetrating translation of the late Jacques Derrida's 'Of Grammatology', Roger Poole notes that "the technique (of deconstruction) once learnt, is as simple, and as destructive, as leaving a bomb in a brown paper bag outside (or inside) a pub".

While counter-terrorism may catch you dosing off before you are initiated through difficulty into the technique of deconstruction from the 300 plus pages 'Of Grammatology', Richard Coyne's 'Derrida for Architects' (2011) detonates the architect's mandatory certified suicide vest well before the 100 page ending.

A concise and cogent read, Coyne does not agonize over whether to leave the brown paper bag inside or outside the threshold of the institution of architecture, he `semtexes' it on to the architecture student's hypothalamus to ensure that she thirsts for greater understanding of Derrida's ironic architectural intifada.
