At first glance, Derrida for Architects seemed a remarkably slim volume. I recalled Mark Wigley’s The Architecture of Deconstruction: Derrida’s Haunt (first published in 1993) as among the last great works expressly linking the areas of philosophy and practice, and I had a keen desire to view the progress since made here. With Derrida’s passing away in 2004, a life’s work in philosophy came to an end, which greatly had influenced critical studies as well as race, gender, and literary theory and the social sciences generally. But for architecture, what remains?
